Unfortunately I do not have any 3-rd party lens, but my, the only “long focal length” lens, the Pentax A 70-210/4 perfectly focuses i.e. there is a perfect match between the actual and the AF detected focus distance.

Seems Pentax lenses are okay in CD-AF.

In my opinion the problematic are only wide angle lenses, when the phase detection somehow gives a false information to the AF system. All my lenses above around 30-35mm of the focal length seem to be working properly. But the CDAF works for all of them without any problem.

Will check my other two WA zooms - DA10-17 and DA18-55 - for that and will let you know. But that might take a while, maybe until next week ...
