DA 12-24mm does not focus.

When I first got the lens brand new it had problem finding focus on my K-7. I wiped the contacts which helped alot. But then this xmas I got a new K-5 from Santa and the first time I put the 12x24 on it would not even try to focus. I wiped the contacts, switched to manual and back. It was in the low 40F. I took the lens off 3 or 4 times, wiped the contacts twice. No other lens I have has this problem on either camera.
Has anyone else had a problem like this? Any suggestions ?

PS The light was good that day and I just put the lens on now and it focused fine inside in poor light.
