Comparing test of new Pentax 18-55 II vs old and Tamron 18-250

This test compares the new Pentax 18-55 II kit lens,
the older Pentax 18-55 kit lens
and the Tamron 18-250 at their sharred focal lenght.
The shots are from the 18mm, 35mm, and 55mm setting.
The shots are at apertures of f 5.6, f 8.0, f 16
there is a 100% center cropp and a 100% left edge towards the upper corner cropp.
The pictures have been shot with the Pentax K100D 6 megapixel camera.
So I assume that with the newer 10 and 14 megapixel Pentax DSLR cameras you could expect even better result.
