LBA: DA* 60-250mm f/4

I finally took the plunge and sold off some lenses and purhcased the 60-250mm. My old A 70-210mm f/4 was my favourite lens until I got the K7 and the poor thing wasn't quite up to the sensor anymore - not bad exactly but combined with the problems of using SR on a manual zoom it kind of went away in a box.

However now I finally (after 6 years or so) have an AF lens in this range that isn't the Bigma. My arms are thanking me already. I haven't really had a chance to test it out properly yet - and I think I probably should shoot some test charts to check for misalignment. Although TBH it looks fine in normal shots, but it does seem to back focus a bit at the longer end. Will need to assess and then correct this.

This is the only shot I've really taken to far that's worth posting on a forum!

May get out tomorrow for some more. Glad I got in in just before the price rise.

As your photo nicely illustrates, the 60-250 is a great lens indeed, one of the three or four lenses I use the most.
