Pentax Service Australia? DA*16-50 FF/BF

Hi mates,

last week I received my DA*16-50 from adorma and I found out that it has got frontfocus problems at wide open and sometimes it doesnīt even find any focus.

As I am going to Europe next months and next week traveling to Cairns and back to Sydney, Iīm not sure what to do now.

I asked adorama for a replacement and I thought about to bring the lens to the pentax-service here in Australia. How long will it take?

I just want to go for the faster option as I am a little bit in a hurry.

Cheers, mates.

Call Phil Viggiano at CR Kennedy in Melbourne and ask him about your options.

You didn't mention if you are using the k100D super, k10D or the k20D.

The k20D supposedly have BF/FF adjustment builtin to the DSLR I believe.

Hey Denny,

Have you got your international warranty? If not pm me or Raider for a quick how to obtain a int. warranty that CRK will honour.

Iīve got the K10D with firmware 1.3 here. No, I donīt have the international warranty card and the guys from adorama suggested me first to contact the pentax tech support before they can provide me returning instructions.

I'm very interested to find out what happened here. Did CRK provide any assistance?

I'm also very interested in hearing if you had a good outcome?
I'm looking at buying a DA 55-300mm from Adorama and don't want to have any drama's if there happens to be a problem with the lens.
