That what I am trying to do but he is not answering me back at this point He seems to be avoiding me
Appears the seller has established contact with the OP, going by the feedbacks and comments.

Was the other lens a SDM lens?

The only thing I would suggest, is trying the defective lens with another Pentax camera body. Maybe the OP's K-3 is defective?

Can feedback be given on a wanted ad?

Also, it might be a HER !
I thought of that, but the wording got awkward. Besides, I'm sure none of our PF gals would do such a thing.

DA 16-50 Problem

If it is still not working, you might consider taking to United Camera in Bensenville. They will give you a repair estimate. This might be used to assert your claim for a refund or return.

Hi
Just got a brand new K3 and bought a 16-50 on this form that was suppose to work just fine I have charge the battery and made no changes to the default setting on the K3 but the 16-50 does not focus on AF at all. Am I doing something wrong with this lens or did I get a dud and it really was not working as was told by the seller on this form. I have tried multiple settings and nothing works. I have another lens that focuses fine Guess I got a bad lens. Any suggestions
Thanks for any help
Mighty Mike.
