I just now received an update for my 50 Art at the repair shop.
They have ordered the mother board of the lens to replace. I can guarantee, as an old consumer electronics rep guy, they have NO idea what's wrong, and decided to switch out all the electronics and cross their fingers. It's also cheaper to replace the whole board, than to find a single component that might act up, very tricky to find.
So a brand new lens, and they have no idea whats wrong, so they try something. I'm not all that confident, because I still can't believe yet again I got a faulty brand new lens, no way....
Yeap......welcome to SMT world. It's cheaper to replace the board. I hope the tech has enough training
