Urgent. Is it still risky to by DA*16 - 50 on line?

Hi everyone

I know, that DA*16 - 50 have had some problems. Many people who purchased it, returned it because of bad quality. I also have heard, that this was a case with a very first series (emission) of this lens and now problems are fixed.
I plan to purchase this lens on-line from US marked (my friend will bring it to me from US to Lithuania where I live). Is it still risky to by this lens without checking its performance? It would be very expensive for me to returne it and get the new one as I would have to pay huge taxes.
My friend will leave soon, so this is urgent question to me. I plan to purchase it from B&H .
Any comments, please.

Tell your friend to ask the sales rep at B&H to try it out on a demo KsomethingD and maybe review the pics to see if they are good enough.
