Thanks, what I want to say is that this lens has a motor inside, that may require some service down the road.
Unlike the SDM lenses which had lots of failure reports, the 18-135 had zero reports of failure in the survey completed here. It's a different motor and design.

I spoke to Pentax customer support in Colorado a while ago about warranty coverage when I purchased a 15mm from Provantage. I was told that if it is sold in the US, comes in a Pentax box, and has the serial number card enclosed in the box, the lens is legitimate and the warranty is good. That serial number card shows thru the little window in the back of the box. I *guess* that is why the window is in the box.
