I've had three LXs. One of them (brand new) disappeared in a home burglary, one is nearly worn out, and one is still virtually new. The problem was always getting decent repar service from Pentax.

I can't imagine that the Zeiss lenses are any better, although they may have more rugged mechanical parts (I presume that they are non-autofocus).
