I dropped Pentax in 2011 and sold everything except for a faulty *istDS2, predominantly because their quality control is so abysmal.

Out of 20 odd Pentax lenses I had only one, the FA50 f1.4, that appeared to not be badly decentred, or suffer from skewed focus.

Thankfully, my experience is different. Of the 7 Pentax k mount lenses I own, all are good. Have you tried them on a different body? I don't know why you have such bad luck with Pentax.
