The longest available focal length from Pentax is a complex topic, which threads are scattered all over the forum.

would something like this be better served as a post (even a sticky) on the lens' review page or over in the lens' actual example shots page?

Hi .
Has anyone on the forum had issues with the 560 DA not focusing, it will work for so long then motor makes noises then won't focus even in manually. It's going back for repairs. I just wondered if it was a know issue?

Never heard of something like this.

I'd adress AF motor issues in this thread:
