Hi !
DPreview says:
"Conclusion - Cons: Needs detailed AF microadjustment for best results";
"Inconsistent autofocus in difficult conditions even after microadjustment."
"...we've only used the Canon mount version of the lens - it's possible other versions may work better."

Have you ever experienced the same or similar AF problems with your copy in Pentax-mount?

I'm interested in the AF issue as well. This lens always intrigued me

I have not found AF issues in my use of the lens. Note that when shooting wide open with any f1.8 lens (including FA 77 ltd), your focus point selection is critical because of shallow depth of field.
