Warranty Repair on 55 DA*... how long?

It hasn't focused right since I bought it... I tried focus fine adjustments on K5 too and never could get it right. I also tried on my brother's K-r and it didn't work there either. So I sent it in for repair last week. They should have received it Friday.

Anyone have any idea how long repair might take with it? I'm actually considering selling it, but obviously couldn't do so without it focusing properly... though who knows, once it works I may end up deciding to keep it. LOL

So any idea how long Pentax repair in AZ takes with something like this?

Thanks!

Depends on how lucky you are- assuming they've got all the parts, 2-6 weeks.

I'm hoping it's not the 6 weeks. That seems a bit out of control if you ask me. LOL

Just wanted to follow up and say I got the lens back in about 2 weeks... which I was pleasantly surprised about. And it appears to be fixed and focusing much better...
