Does the da* 16-50 have any issues mounted on a k20?

Hi all,

I was just wondering if there was a consensus regarding the "back-focus" issue many are finding with their copies of the 16-50? I know people were able to send in their cams with the lens to have them "aligned" or something, which fixes the problem. Is it only K10 owners that have to do that? If I buy a new k20 with a new 16-50, should I be worried? Is it a lens defect, or just a mis-match between some copies and some k10s?

it's hard to say really. my 16-50 works good on both bodies. w/ the k20 tho, you can do that focus adjust thing. so it's less of a problem...i guess

i dont think it's a BF issue tho (for the most part anyway)...a lot of gripe towards it, is the softness at the wide end.......whilst taking photos of brick walls.....
