Since the autofocus in live view uses contrast detect instead of phase detect, they are 2 independent ways of detecting focus for the camera. Contrast detect is usually very precise, it would tell if the lens can be in focus or not, and identify the problem as phase detect autofocus. You will still have to send it back so in the end it won't change anything for you, but we will be happy to know what it was because we are curious and have nothing better to do :)

You should try AF in live view. If it's clean you'll know the AF the problem and maybe not the lens.

But anyhow, if you bought the k5 + 18-135 package from pro digital and everything comes out this way, you'll have to send all back, not just the lens or just the body since it's all in the same Pentax package.
