Anyone with a k20, k7 or k5 could adjust the focus for this particular lens. It is a pretty common thing to do. I wouldn't worry so much. Just post some well focused shots.

What is say is correct if it is a Prime Lens. But with a zoom lens, one end can back focus and the other end of the focal range can front focus.
So in that scenario, there is not a easy solution to fix it through focus adjustments in-camera.

I don't really know how to proceed from this point. If I use this lens on K-x, I'd have to manually adjust the focus level every time I switch lenses. This can be bothersome, but it's easy to change the AF.
The lens is not necessarily to blame, my K-x front focuses with all my lenses, needing a constant +80 adjustment in debug mode. If on the K10D the lens focuses right, it might be the K-x that needs focus calibration.

Bump with price adjustment.
$300 flat now.

It seems like it's my K-x that has a problem. Tried it on k-5,k-7,k-r and they didn't have any issues I could find.
