Just found out today that my SMC Pentax DA 18-250 mm lens does not focus. I have had this problem from day one, just attributed it to being a newbie and possibly using the wrong settings. A local camera store tried 2 other lenses and both worked fine. Since I have a photography workshop this weekend, I need another lens.
Looked at a SMC Pentax F 35-70mm F 3.5-4.5 lens. Any thoughts on this lens or other recommendations?
Would appreciate any advice that is offered.
