Is it true?

I've heard that the final polishing of Pentax limited lens' are done on the thighs of virgins in a secret Shinto ceremony at a undisclosed temple in the remote mountains of Northern Japan.

What do you think?

Assembled in Vietnam limiteds are probably treated differently.

Quite true.

But they tried the same thing when SDM lenses were made. However, the motors got overused by some naughty virgins, hence the problem with some SDM lenses but not others and the poor Pentax community is divided between those who swear that SDM does not work and other who say that they have no problems whatsoever.

Especially in Japan, judging from some of the material coming out of there in recent years... (don't know if to or ).

Ever wondered why they wanted to release consumer-level weather sealing ?
