Pentax lens vs others

how i wish that pentax made all metal lens, instead of plastic lens. light weight metal as magnesium or aluminum but metal. that itself would be such an appealing feature. plastics reduce weight only marginally but looses its longevity as to its lifespan.
imagine pentax limited lens in plastic that itself speaks volumes. Of course if it an high on repair ability index thats would be a killer.

Repairing DA* 16-50 Broken Zoom

how smart is the design, on checking that plastic part to the metal guide is broken, the second plastic guide on the barrel screwed in is broken and now the screw does not fit, did a diy repair using epoxy, but doubtful but now in vain as,
in the process attempting to align two parts- barrel body to the focusing guide flex cable broke, my clumsiness, but it was minor clumsiness.
flimsy design, wonder how will it be rated in ifixit rating on repair-ability.
am sure its not engineering grade plastic which can take stress of bumps on the lens.
I strip lens repair them as hobby, but this is the lens which has tested my patience.

on This one I can give one tip. Put the lens first. Fit the zoom and focus tabs first, then screw it in place but don't tight then. Let some space. Then, put the shins in their places with a tweezer, sliding in the space you left. It's much easier that way, as you saw yourself, matching the tabs in place is very complicated

my lens will not zoom, when i do the fitting keeping it @ 50mm it will move to 16mm after that it remains jammed, but if without going to 16mm it moves slightly more than 16mm, it moves to 50mm and back there, but the moment i take it to 16mm it jams,any idea what am i getting wrong

its plastic is thrash, screw threads start giving way, or just that plastic crumbles, re fabrication is an issue. for me now its only lens with metal, so what if its thirdparty, so long the optics are great.

i have a F*300, use it on K-7 or k-30, damaged the first (front glass gone love to have a donor though :)), brought second, it is one of the best lens pentax has made may be next to FA31 limited. not withstanding it is the shortest 300mm around, the ease of carrying.

not fair F* 300 with tripod collar, use third party tripod collar its cheaper and lighter

lift the mirror clean it with a lint free cloth, if it persist then check something is stuck to the shutter, if the dust function is detecting something then it must be the shutter, dangerous area, being the body it is worth attempting cleaning without opening, disassembly to clean the shutter, well u will loose ff setting at the least.
if its just a floater between the shutter and the sensor open the bottom cover and give some tap so that it falls off.

Pentax Smc 2,5/200 | eBay
but infront of F*300 4.5 maybe (i think its one of the best lens i have used F* ofcourse) and 200 is not the range i use, sold my at-x pro 70-200/2.8 a year or so back, no reason to hold on this.

---------- Post added 04-16-2019 at 07:38 PM ----------

just praying that someone exchanges this with a non issue At-x pro 20-35/2.8 which i regret having sold
