I just got a DA 16-85. As with any new Pentax lens, I immediately took it out for a brick wall test. Sure enough, it is optically decentered, with bad weakness on the right side.

That's my second bad Pentax lens (out of two new lenses purchased) since last summer.

It's going back.


I think Joe your version of acceptable is not the same as Pentax's , This isn't meant as a criticism just a fact.

Joe's lens was not tested optically........they don't check every lens optically just an occasional sample! . there's just a quick mechanical check. it comes off the line and goes into the box ...

So how would Pentax have known whether it was good or not?......
