IME Pentax QC suck these days

as an ex Pentax enthusiast I would say the Pentax lens problem these days (wasn't always this way) is not price but quality control...

I know so many people including me who got dud 16-50mm 2.8 pentax lenses, also the expensive quality primes like the FA*31 were insanely good when made in Japan, after the move to Vietnam the quality fell fast..

never again sorry Pentax... You will find Olympus much smaller, lighter and FAR less chance of quality control issues..
