16-50mm lens won't autofocus on k30, but will with other bodies

My 16-50 lens has never quite liked my k-30, sometimes the autofocus works - the rest of the time, which is the majority of the time - I have to manually focus and the lens doesn't even try to focus.

It always works when I use it on my k-50 or my k-01.

Any suggestions?

try cleaning your SDM contacts on your K30 perhaps?
