It's
PENTAX-DA* 50-135mm F2.8 ED [IF] SDM

see exif
No, one is 50-135 according to LR3, the 3 others are unknown.
And 18/48mm is hard to achieve with a 50-135

My images from 35/2.4 chain

I think this is the better chain for these images:

Some 18-135 images:

135mm f/5.6





18mm f/5, look at the vertical line at right. No distortion correction added



31mm f/5



18mm f/5.6

LR3 should have recognized it then.

There were no girls in Pentax area. (Actually there was one. She was there with me)

When we arrived (Taken with DA 17-70):

As I posted over on the other thread, those are nice looking shots, and the centers look good, but the bane of these lenses made by others is the corner resolution. One can't really judge the corners without a flatter field of focus. So far, so good, though.

I am so liking this lense so far...it looks even better than my old "el cheapo" fav Canon, the EF-S 55-250IS which took super shots...this has the advantage of that "Pentax look" to the shots...dunno if that is a real thing or not, but I choose to believe!

hmmm,
As I am going to Mt. Kota Kinabalu in February next year. I am thinking of asking my daughter to buy this lens for me. The last time I climbed a mountain, it was drizzling the whole time and did not even try to take the K100D out of my bag.
Now that I have a K20, this would give me an "all weather" kit.
Of course if the weather cooperates, I'll have opportunity to bring out the DA's.

I like to think of "do everything" zooms the same way I think of "Asian Fusion" restaurants - they try to "do everything" and end up doing it all poorly. Zooms beyond a 3:1 ratio introduce too many optical compromises to be good performers, so only those too lazy to carry a few lenses to cover the same range, and who don't give a crap about their image quality, should buy them. I don't like mediocre food, and don't like mediocre lenses, either.
On this one I agree with you. Pentax cancels the three best lenses they make and they offer a cheap plastic zoom. It looks like unless you are in the 645D category Pentax is no longer a good fit for prime lens users. Canceling the FA Limiteds was the final straw for me. I had saved diligently for the last 12 months and was going to purchase all three to compliment the DA 15-70mm I own.

On the plus side for you guys, I will be listing the DA's in the for sale forum in the next two-three weeks + about 10 SMC A's and SMC M's + 2 Voigtlanders (warning I will only sell them in lots because I just don't have time to run back and forth to the Post Office). I need to wait until the Sony stuff I ordered shows up and figure out which M's I want to keep to use with my E-P2. Sadly now I have to save more to afford the really expense Sony prime lenses.... Those things aren't cheap.

I'm staring out with the "easy choice line-up" + the 20mm. They are cheap and plastic but at least they are prime lenses Then I guess I can add one a year of their better lenses.
