Pentax 16-50 on sale

I am very interested in the DA 16-50 that is currently on sale at $999. I am trying to find out if the rumors on the forum about Pentax "fixing" the SDM failure problem are true or not. I spoke with a gentleman in cameras at B&H and he indicated that I should contact Pentax to verify. Would you happen to know who/how to contact someone at Pentax that might know?

I'm afraid that the sale price will end before I can get answers but it is a very expensive/quality optic with what seems to be problems with early production lenses and I'd like to see if there have been changes in the current production lenses.

Thanks, Bob

Generally speaking, when a manufacturer acknowledges a "problem" they would issue a Service Advisory and either confirm our inventory was problem free, take back or "recall" product or make available a user solution such as a firmware update. I am not aware of Ricoh Imaging making any statements on the matter.

I've reached out to our rep and should he have any insight, I'll let you know.
