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.


Dang. My recent experience has been the opposite. I'm 3 for 3. My 15mm HD, 20-40 HD and 70 HD were perfect right out of the box. And I tested them pretty hard too. All bought in the last few weeks.

Edward, I have those same three lenses, and mine were all good--except my DA 70 needs +7 focus adjustment on every camera.
