Ricoh should provide lifetime warranty free of cost for all SDM lenses.

The lens has been repaired and and it is good to have it back in great working condition.

I did hold off for a bit and used it as a manual lens for a bit as I had till Dec to use the warranty.

London Drugs was great, offering to go to bat for me and offered to contact the Pentax/Ricoh rep for possible credit/help but we decided to save that for another time as AMX extended warranty was covering at this time and that would be expired by the next time.

The repair was done by Sun Camera Repair for $325.96 and London Drugs handled all the shipping and paper work.

AMX covered everything based on having all the paper work and receipts.

Happy to have the lens back and happy to shoot Pentax.
