DA 50mm f1.8 - QuickShift or not?

Hello there,

been looking in various places and can't seem to find a definitive answer as some website say yes and some say no.

Does the Pentax SMC DA 50mm f1.8 prime lens have Quick Shift focussing i.e. you can focus the lens manually either before using AF or after acquiring AF without having to switch the AF/MF switch on the camera ... and most importantly it does it without grinding or crunching the focussing mechanism as happens if you try with a non quick-shift lens?

Nope! I probably read the same conflicting reports on it, but having now bought it I can confirm that it doesn't have quick shift.

You beat me to it Daz! It doesn't have quick-shift.
