"As our test showed, the Pentax HD DA 20–40 mm f/2.8–4.0 ED Limited DC WR is not such a pearl of a lens so it seems to be aimed only at the biggest fans of that brand, still remembering and venerating the legend of the cult Limited lenses which, currently, is becoming more and more tarnished."

This doesn't sound like a positive review.

"New users and those immune to the Limited magic will be hardly encouraged by this instrument to enter the Pentax system."

While I have no interest in the 20-40, the reviewer sounds a bit biased against the limited category of lenses in general.

That's a possibility, IIRC correctly his take on the 31ltd seemed a bit off...  He at the time blamed it on MIS vs. MIJ models tested.
