Re: Can Pentax make A Decent Lens? Ricoh have not fixed QC issues...

I own quite a number of Pentax lenses and have never had a problem until I recently bought the DA 20-40 Ltd which I have found to be pretty fuzzy even at some distance form the edges compared with the DA 21 and 35 Ltds and not just wide open. The centre sharpness is fine but the rest is bad even at f8 - so I am hoping that I simply got a bad copy.  My camera dealer has recognised the problem and I have arranged to visit and test against his other stock. I guess that I have been lucky up til now! I am also quite surprised that a lens with new HD coating would be less contrasty than the old DA 21 and 25 Ltds without the HD coating.
