Another quick question - is it sharp? Any issues? (The reason I ask is because my last one was WAY off on my K5iis even after microadjustment...)...

Thx,
C.

The lens is in my opinion perfect - as you would expect from the 31mm Limited. When I bought it I was using it on a K7 and had some issues with accurate autofocus at infinity, but that was a camera issue - I had no such problems with the K5.
I'm attaching a few pictures... the first is a test shot cropped to 100% showing the upper left corner - the lens is great corner to corner. Next is a picture taken at infinity, F11 at Emerald Bay. And the last three are taken at F1.8, F2.8 and all the way at F22, just to show performance at various F-stops.
I don't have my K5 anymore, sold it about a week ago - so if you want to see something specific (f-stop etc), let me know and I'll see if I can find something. I photograph mostly landscapes, so I may not be able to find specific example pictures.
