Had two newer model 16-50, both in repair for stuck zoom at least three times each. (Never had SDM issues)
Debating about repair one for the fourth time or just ditch Pentax completely when the other one goes.

Top of the line lens is garbage, and only repair center in the us cannot fix it. It kills me to switch, as other brand bodies cannot significantly beat the image quality even at six times the price, but all that ain't worth spit if the lenses don't work!
