Both are done by measurbators, but one with real-world scenes as the shooting targets and the other with test charts in a "lab":
(Tested with K-3, in Traditional Chinese)
(Tested with K-5 II)
The lens model seems to be fairly good. However, it arrives just too late, Canon and Sony had similar models many years ago, when APS-C DSLRs still shined. Nonetheless, I myself feel that the DA17-70 F4 would still be a better lens optically, because of its constant aperture but only a slightly shorter reach. For size and weight wise, the HD 16-85 is not a compact lens anyway.

It is reported that Ricoh Imaging USA has confirmed this also.
It seems that the Pentax APS-C system is dying, but the new FF system has not yet been completed and arrived, bad! :-(
Btw, the author of the above post is a famous Japanese photographer who is close to the official Ricoh Pentax internal source.
