While in between the job of shoving snow (1 ft around in Toronto) I stole a fellow's test full size pict (Tomtor at http://www.xs4all.nl/~tomv/pentax/lens-test/ ) and summarisd below the comparison iamges of the Kit lens with M50mm F1.7, Pentax 25-80 & Tokina zoom 28-80 in manageable size

At F5.6

Kit len at F5.6

M50mm at F5.6

All below are at F8

Kit lens at F8

M50mm at F8

Pentax 25-80 at F8

Tokina 28-80 at F8

Of course all are resized only. And if you feel like pixel peeping, you can go back to Tom's original files ( in over 3,000x 2000 size ) . As usual, I will let people draw their conclusion
