I just received a 50/1.4. I tried it on my NX but the AF would not work. It sounded like the motor was trying to spin up but could not. Everything works fine in manual. From a previuos post it would seem that this will cost about $250 to fix. Am I correct on this? Does it have to go to Japan to be fixed or is this something that Conurus does?

I paid $425 for the lens and am wondering whether I should return it or get it fixed - what do you think?

Cheers
Mark

Returning it for a refund would be the least risky option.

I am going to get a partial refund from the vendor. So I want to get this lens fixed and converted should I send it to Conurus first?

We would pre-fill a Contax Japan repair form and send it to you to be included with the lens and you send it to Japan but it will be returned straight to us after the repair.
