Today I attached my brand new lens that arrived thanks to SRS's fantastic sale and it's a lemon. Anyone else had an issue with it not being able to focus? The video shows its bizarre behaviour.

Call SRS now. They'll change it.

I have emailed them and await their reply. FWIW it seems a beautifully made lens. I tried micro adjustments on the K-5 and it made no difference.

Lens is going to be collected and replaced. Hopefully the next one will be OK!
