Why are you using the RBI hood from the DA 12-24mm lens? What happened to the RBJ hood that came with this lens brand new?

I used this lens with Pentax K-5 IIs and there were absolutely no issues with the SDM. However I think there can be issues with older Pentax DSLR cameras (K-5 classic or older) due to their less sophisticated AF algorythms.

The lens autofocuses easily and Quick-Shift Focus System works perfectly.

I also would like to inform you that I am not a pentaxist anymore (I don't have any Pentax camera available because I sold mine about 1 year ago) therefore I won't be able to send test shots from this lens. However photos from my trip to Sri Lanka on 2014 made with this lens can be seen here: A subjective look at smc Pentax-DA* 16-50mm F/2.8 ED AL [IF] SDM @ Pentax K-5 IIs - All about autofocus lenses - AFLenses.net (more than 5000+ views, wow, that's pretty cool for me)

In any case I can provide photo of my lens which will prove that I actually possess the lens.

I am not the original owner of the lens. I bought it from another person and it already came with that RBI hood. I used this lens only once during my travel to Sri Lanka in 2014 and switched to Canon EF system after that. I don't have any Pentax K gear anymore (except for smc FA 135/2.8 IF which is on sale here separately).
