1) I would suggest you fill more of the frame with your lens align widget

2) the post doesn't say, but suggest you use tripod, SR off, mirror lock up and remote / self timer release, using 1/50 at 250mm is no good if you're handheld

4) it's not easy imho to get test widgets like this and the camera aligned perfectly so do some tests with real life stuff too, several shots of a subject at the same focus adjustment of the K5 and work your way through the adjustments to see what's best.

5) It's a great lens, I'm rarely without it, it's in my never sell category.

Try English, not franglais, and say something like "my mistake" instead
