Posts: 387 Pentax lens test tables

Here are two interesting and helpful tables showing photozone's Pentax lens test scores posted recently in the Xitek Pentax forum (link)

PZ Pentax lens tests and results on a K10D body ranked first to last in terms of optical quality (K-5 and newer WR lenses not shown).
The first star/rating column shows optical quality; the second column shows mechanical quality; the third column shows "highly recommended" if awarded.

Anyone care to interpret the second table?

Thanks to RiceHigh's Pentax Blog.

I've updated the table to include the newer lenses tested with the K-5.
