Got a dud DA* 16-50
Apr 21, 2008

I went down to our local camera shop (Glazer's in Seattle) and picked up the 16-50. The sales person assured me that if I got a bad copy there'd be no hassle in returning it.

I just got it home and ran some formal-ish tests. At 50mm it's great, but at 16 it can't autofocus to save it's life. It gets progressively worse between 50 and 16.

It's going back to the store tomorrow. I'm sure Glazer's will be true to their word, but I really had hoped Pentax would have the QC sorted out by now.
