With the fact that the 17-50 might be prone to having focusing issues with the Pentax bodies, I'm glad I went on ahead and passed it by.

You decided against the 17-50 cos 1 guy has an early model in Pentax mount that he says is not focusing right? I did not see any samples posted showing the problem did you?
I am not calling Kameraten a liar or anything and his copy may very well be having front focusing but i see no evidence to state his claim or any info regarding how the testing was done. Besides every lens manufacturer will have a dud or two but tamron is certainly better than many in quality control.

I agree, we've only heard one story so far and deviation from the norm is a fact of life (lenses included). I can be the next "guinea pig" once it's available here in the United States.
