Just an FYI about Illinois...
Videotaping Law Enforcement Illegal in 3 States|Photocine News

But yes I do agree with the fact that consent should not be needed to video tape, or photograph. Their line of questioning was ridiculous once they started asking where your kids were...I guess they can ask anything they want, but you having children and where they were had nothing to do with it. As for photographing the ferris wheel, or anything else for that matter, I would make sure you are familiar with the laws for the particular place (even down to the city, not just state or national laws). I have been harrassed due to having a tripod in NYC, but I guess there is some ordanance about tripods being an obstruction or something, I can't remember the text...but it seems to me you were perfectly inside your legal rights to be doing what you were doing, bottom line, I guess know the laws, and know your rights, also carry your rights with you.

FA is also AF where the A isn't. Not sure if that is a big deal or not for you, but something to consider.

You also need to take into account there are more reviews on the D-FA vs. the FA, so that alone will drive the review average down a bit more on the D-FA.

The question is, which focus point were you using for these...if it was the center focus point, I would say yeah the thing isn't quite right...looks almost de-centered in some of the shots.

Send it back, demand a new copy, I cannot believe they listed that as new.

Another SDM Failure - 16-50mm f/2.8

I did the repair per the thread, and it worked....for about two weeks, then failed again....I bought a Sigma 17-50 2.8...problem solved...but agree, Pentax needs to fix this issue, or do a MkII version of this lens, enable screw drive or whatever to alleviate the issue...but they won't because that would acknowledge there is a problem.

I just bought one with the same concerns, my 16-50 had crapped the bed for the third time, and I don't feel like paying for it anymore...I got the 17-50, and so far I am pleased.
