I don't have to buy 82 mm as I already have it . I tried to use it for my new lens but if I am correct the rim of the lens is to small/short to put 82 mm adapter ring? Is it possible that is is problem of Pentax or it is new model/type of lens? I mark with red in the picture attached .
I've overcome this problem by taking a cheap second hand 82mm UV filter and knocking the glass out. I can then attach my Lee and NiSi filter holders. The NiSi filter holder has less vignetting and I can use it in FF mode at 18mm on my K. Small vignetting can be easily sorted in post processing.

Its a shame none of the reviewers that do more consistent optical tests seem to test Pentax anymore. (Lenstip, optical limits)

That is why we have this community ...

there are reviews on: Pentaxforums, Ephotozine, B&H site

there are user reviews on many places: HD Pentax-DA* 11-18mm F2.8 ED DC AW Reviews - DA Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

there are no user reviews yet on: dpreview, imaging resouce

The simplest solution is to buy a copy of this lens. I have ordered mine, I was not satisfied with AF, the second copy is all right in every aspect ...
