Lens Tournament Knockout Stage

It's time for the knockout stage of our Pentax Lens Tournament!

As a refresher, here's the drill. In each category, as per the nomination stage, the first seed faces the eighth, two goes up against seven, and so forth. The bracket at the bottom of this post will be updated after each match. Voting for each match will be open for 24 hours and announced in advance. The winning lens in each match goes to the next round; the loser goes home. The champions of each bracket will face off in the Final Four: Best Wide-Angle vs. best Telephoto, and best Normal vs. best Short Telephoto. The winners of those two contests will then face off to be named the Greatest Of All Time.

Once our champion lens has been crowned by the residents of PF, we'll move to the giveaway, which will start in November.  More details on that will be posted once our lens tournament wraps up.

Check this post often, as the list of matchups will be updated daily from now until the end of the tournament!  The actual matchups will be held on the forum.
