Thanks for your review and comparison of the lenses.

Do you know who is manufacturing the Pentax version? Pentax?

Is the coating different (especially of the front and rear elements)?

Also AF Fine-Adjustment (AF-FA) sometimes is critical over the range of super zooms. Different values may be required for short and long focal ranges.

Enjoy your zoom duo
