I cannot find that description for the DA50 f1.8 anywhere on the Pentax website.

Fortunately, in Australia, if a new item is offered for sale at any price, unless it is described as having particular faults, it must be fit for purpose. 

At any price...

I'm a retailer, too, so that legislation makes me very careful in how we present new items for sale, and the claims we make for them.

It also means that when any customer has any problem that smells even slightly like a warranty issue we do everything in our power to make the resolution process as painfree for the customer as possible.

Not every retailer or wholesaler has the same attitude.  Mind you, so far CRK are playing the game...but if they cannot provide a reasonably straight DA50 I'll have to find an FA50 instead.
