If DA* 50-135 on K100D, don't know if will short life of SDM ?

Since K100D does not support SDM, don't know if I put DA* 50-135 on K100D will short the life of SDM or the lens?

Thanks

Not sure if anyone can really answer that question but I would suppose not.

For the tight budget, is a good idea change my K100D to K-x ?
Does K-x support SDM ?

The K100D's fine but both the K-m and K-x will be significant upgrades to it for a reasonably low cost. Highly recommended unless you'd be happy with a more advanced console like a K20D. Bear in mind the AF performance with the K-m and K-x will be quite improved again from the K20D.

The K100D Super will support SDM.

Any chance you might have the Super?

I dont think i have a change to get K100 Super
Since the hight cost for K-7 , and within one year , i dont have plan to buy it. That's why i am thinking if a good idea to do a trade in with local store and get a K-X instead.
