FYI: DA 16-45mm
Mar 13, 2009

Any owners out there with the DA 16-45mm lens? This is just some info...My lens was not performing up to the task, various focal lengths, mostly weak corners at 16mm/20mm/28mm and overall weak 45mm. But now after a quick service (under warranty) by Pentax Canada and the lens is incredibly sharp at all focal lengths!

Apparently they adjusted some components inside, I believe so because the front barrel does not wobble any more and the overall construction feels more stiff.

So, if you are having these issues then send it in and you'll be smiling after that. My turnaround was about 6 weeks.

All the best.
