Pentax 60-250mm lens, focusing issues

Bought a brand new 60-250mm lens from Adorama ( I think). Maybe B&H. The focusing always seemed imperfect, but I wasn't sure. I thought it might just be THAT camera, or maybe "low battery". That was on my K-01. ???? Then I bought a K-5, and the lens function was still QUESTIONABLE. Then I bought a K-S2 and that lens seemed incompatible with it too. I now own a Brand-new super PENTAX K-1, and love it dearly..... The 60-250mm Pentax lens does Not focus well even with the K-1. And I feel at wits end because, these particular focal lengths are exactly the parameters I need. I'm now on vacation in South Africa, and am sick about Not having use of my Other-wise great Telephoto lens. Please let me know what possible recourse I may have as regards this PROBLEM.. I have since heard that focusing issues and motor drive issues have been COMMON. Manually, it's a fabulous lens, but Manully focusing is sometimes a real INCONVENIANCE. I live in Michigan, and all of my Pentax purchases have been "mail-order" either B&H or Adorama. Please Advise. Thank you, in advance. RJM
