    Not quite...

    DPReview only started reviewing lenses in 2008. If you scroll to the bottom of the lens review page, you'll find that the FIRST lens reviewed by them is the Pentax DA 18-55 kit lens! Then followed by the Pentax DA 16-45!

    The review of the FA50 "is part of a series looking at a number of 50mm primes, including those which we use for the test shots in our camera reviews. We're also taking the opportunity to compare the brand new Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM with those older 50mm F1.4s, to see if the benefits of modern computer-aided lens design and manufacturing techniques translate to a tangible improvement in image quality."

    Of course Pentax has the fewest lenses reviewed compared to the other brands but that's more due to DPReview limitations rather than Pentax being left far behind
