Well I have DA*60-250mm and that is a great lens. I use it for sports, so my subjects are a little bigger. There is a little review soemwhere down in this lensthread.

My DA40mm/f2.8 Ltd is my fastest lens in AF and FA*85mm is also very fast, ony misses a little more when light condition is a bitt less.

DA* lenses: 55mm is very slow, 50-135mm isn't fast and 60-250mm is twice as fast.

I had once Sigma 300mm/f2.8 on my K-5 and that lens is like twice as fast in AF (also faster then sigma 70-200mm lens). There is a price for everything.
Ron, do you know how the DA* 60-250mm AF compares to the DA* 200mm, speed wise? I'm thinking about swapping my DA* 200 for a DA* 60-250mm just for the extra range.
