Anyone in Miami, FL with a 16-50?

My 16-50 DA* makes an odd noise during AF that none of my other SDM lenses have and I would like to compare it to another 16-50 if I can. There is no camera store in Miami that sells the 16-50 that I can find and I do not know anyone who owns this lens other than me.

Anyone interested in meeting up? It's a fun chance to try out some of my DA* lenses in exchange for your time.

I'm in Miami, FL. I'd be more than happy to help, but sadly I only have a DA* 50-135.

Thanks for the reply. Not many of us that I know of in Miami. I only know of four others who use Pentax in Miami. I'll PM you a little later when I have a little extra time.

YouTube - pentax 16-50 Lens test

that is the video i sent in with my lens to pentax, they replaced the lens. You should keep in mind that you have to send it in within the one year warranty period if you want pentax to replace or repair your lens

Mine maks the same noise the entire time but does not fail to focus. So far it's working fine even if singing like a bird. I guess I need to send mine in...
