DA* 200 F2.8 sighted

Good news to those waiting for the DA*'s long zooms. Chasseur d'Images reviews the DA* 200 F2.8. Seems like France is ahead of the curve here...

Availability said to be Jan 15, 2008. News courtesy of that other forum....

Yep!

And since I am propagating rumors, a french Pentax rep who is participating on the forum i got the info from said that he saw no visible vigneting when mounting the DA*200mm on his LX...

I'll try to get this issue of Chasseur d'Images this evening to see what they have to say about our DA* lenses...

Well, but this helps nothing, because the lens has NO aperture ring, AFAIK!

Well that was just to keep the FF folks going... which they probably don't need anyway...

I could use it on my Z1P though.... the 50-135 is showing clear signs of vigneting at all focals on this one.
