Images shot from a plane , through a plastic window into a heat haze and you complain its not sharp.!!!

Aaaah, you must have missed this one.  Shot through the same thick, warped plexiglass window in-between the other two.  I wonder how we could explain this, because obviously my technique is wrong:

Ouch, that pic is sharp!  Isn't it?

Same shutter speed as the other two, same window, only a few seconds apart.  Same heat haze, same everything except for being another exposure.

Building with two lens where the Pentax is sharp only on the left and teh the Nikon if is not sharp at all show the Pentax has QC issues !!

Yep.  Have you ever read a lens review? It's pretty hard to find one that doesn't show how sharpness falls off towards the edges.  This isn't a Nikon vs Pentax shootout, you know!

Why are you so defensive?

What are you going to do if CRK replace or fix my lens?

I've even offered to pay them to align/check the K200D as well, because all I want is a good DA50 f1.8.

And I think I'll end up with one.
