Re: Pulled the trigger on Pentax 17-70

Forgot to mention that I too have had the focus hesitation issues towards 70mm. Not exactly sure where it starts, but it is a bit annoying. For me it only happens in lower light or low contrast subjects. I too have a K20D and I guess it more of camera issue. It would be interesting to hear from someone as to how it focuses at 70mm on a K-7 or K-5. Regardless, for me it's not that big of a deal since it only gets bad in borderline to bad lighting. Acually it seems like I have a decent hit rate (for a K20D mind you) with continuous focusing on and the DA 17-70 on good contrast subjects.
