50-200 WR arrived today ...

Not happy. Auto-Focus on my K-01 seems inconsistent. Serious lack of sharpness above 85mm or so. Lack of detail compared to my 18-55 Mark II. Poor corners at wide end up to 24mm. Did I get a bad copy? I think the 55-300 might be a better choice. All in all, it's slim pickings when it comes to fitting a good but economical compact zoom tele to my K-01 kit. I looked through Sigma's and Tamron's offerings of same. Not much there either. Primes are out of the question. Any suggestions?
