Presumably you're using 1 as representing the best?


I suppose I didn't expect the 16-50 to rate so low.

I wouldn't see it as low just slower than those above but then like the da*55 above it a long throw lens and has to be slower due to accuracy required for intended use.

i.e da* 300 is likely to be shooting 25M+ where you talking DoF in feet, but the da*55 and da* 16-50 are most likely to be used into 1-3m range were DoF is very much inches and even focused on nose not eye will be noticeable.

It woudl be a serious indictment of Pentax if short range portrait lens whipped Telephotos butts in the AF stakes
