I wasn't sure if I should post this in the Lenses Forum, but since it has to do with a Pentax I took a chance and posted here. Well, this is the problem I have: I was just toying around with my new Pentax DA 18-55mm f3.5,5.6 (weather-resistant) lens. I haven't had a chance to give it a "test" since getting it a couple weeks ago, so I went out to the backyard and went snap-happy to make sure the mechanics feel OK across the zoom range. Then I noticed that, no matter how finely I try, I cannot get the lens into its 43mm->46mm focal range; it skips from 42mm to 47mm given the info. I get upon reviewing the pics. I have tried everything to get into that range but the result is always the same. I have no other zoom to compare it with so I was wondering if this is normal behaviour for this particular model. I'm pretty close to asking for an exchange.
