was the DA*16-50mm lens quality control issue resolved?

Hi all,
i'm new here, about to buy a KX, and was all set to order the DA* 16-50 lens when i happened on this site and found all these issues - petitions, even - about quality control problems with an expensive lens that i was going to order as my standard walk-around lens...
i see the posts on this problem go back a few years - but are still mentioned in recent posts as well.
has Pentax addressed this ?
thank you.

AFAIK yes it has, quite significantly. You can trace the issue in this thread:*-16-5...-database.html
