Updated DA* 60-250 Picture

Saw this over at DPR. Looks like the revamped version has a tripod collar, while maintaining the same length by shrinking the huge focus ring and slightly cutting down on the zoom ring length.

Aww man, I like V1 much better. The big rubberrized rings are much sexier.

It's more or less the APS-C replacement for a 100-300mm f/4.

Its good to have a tripod collar but they had more space there to make the focusing ring bigger, should have used it
