Funny how some of us have all the baddies...

Yes, and some people see problems where none exist, I'm not saying the OP is one of them but there sure are hypochondriacs out there that easily imagine problems which account for some of those who keep getting multitudes of bad lenses.

Yeah i've not got a bad lens either, however I'm guessing if i do some rigorous testing and pixel peeping, maybe some are not perfect. I just don't notice it with my photos.

Its got to be something other than just bad luck in the OP's case. Whether its in their head a bit so they go looking for issues, emotion plays an important part in it when people are upset about something.

I'm sure there are some valid faulty lenses, but given many have 20+ Pentax lenses without fault, yet the OP who would be in the minority has mostly faulty lenses, something doesn't quite add up.
