DOA 06 Lens

Just got a new 06 lens in the mail today and it's dead on arrival. It will not autofocus or manually focus at all or allow the shutter to fire. Anyone see anything like this before? I've contacted the seller so we'll see if they do anything for me. Might have to get Pentax to fix it under warranty.

If you bought it brand new from an authorized Pentax retailed (like B&H) just return it or exchange for another -- warranty repair not needed.

Have you upgraded your firmware?

This seems to be a dumb question for me to ask, but I have to check to make sure.

Here goes: You do have the lens zoom ring rotated out of the "transport position" and between 15 and 45 right?

I had the same problem with the 06 about a week after getting it (direct from CRK).
CRK advance exchanged it immediately. No problems with the replacement.

What's the usual turn around time for Pentax warranty repairs? The seller offered to either refund my money if I send it back or he said I can contact Pentax and go through the warranty process. I got a great deal on the price so if you were me would you send it back or go the warranty route?
