any MTF (resolution) data on the 18-55 MKII?

is there any data about this kitlens anywhere?

I do want to know it's IQ performance at the 24mm and 28mm range. though there is a data about the MK I, it lacked the necessary reference along those focal range to atleast have a bit of an idea of how good this lens is at those fl.

I could not find it either few months back before I ordered mine... so I bought it going by users comments...

And let me tell you.. it seems like optically is a much improved lens over the regular K10D kit lens.....

I am still curious to have Photozone test i and state the MTF resolution...

No MTF data, but here's a review of the mkii:

Pentax Lens: Zooms - Pentax 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL II SMC DA (Tested) -!

Pentaxor, I noticed in your sig that you have the 18-55 WR, which has the same optics as the mkii...
