At least they got that right.

I'm curious, why are you still obsessing over Pentax? You keep writing negative posts filled with dots; why?

The D FA 70-210 is not a clone in the first place. It is a customization of the Tamron 70-210; it likely even has mechanical updates (the focus limiter) besides the usual (mount, coatings, glass, outer shell).
I'd rather have Pentax original designs, of course, but this mainly on primes - not on "filler" lenses like this. The D FA* 50mm f/1.4 is not just great; it's amazing.
The glass is the same. The coatings are the same. The outer shell is the same, just different rings and script.

It is not a Tamron clone, it is a rebadged Tamron.
Luckily' I'd say, because that Tamron is a great lens and Pentax' f2.8 design does not render bachground bokeh nearly as smooth.
