Pentax 60-250 just arrived

I just received my Pentax 60-250 DA* today after years of looking at this lens. I hope I like as much as most of the people on this forum do. I printed out and assembled a lens test chart to do some focus and IQ tests.

Instead of shooting lens charts, why not rush outside and take pictures of everything&

This lens will constantly amaze you, its colours, sharpness, bokeh and "smooth" rendering is all it's claimed to be.

It's been raining the last two days and is forecast for rain the next few days, but I'm hoping to get out in between downpours. Thanks for the encouraging comments on this lens. And thanks to all of you who have commented on my posts about this lens over the last couple of years. Your input was very valuable. It took me a while to click that buy button, but I'm glad I finally made that decision.
My current setup is: Pentax K-5 (maybe the K-3ii when it's released), Sigma 17-50APO 2.8, Pentax 50-135DA* 2.8, Pentax 60-250DA* 4.0, Tokina 80-400ATX 4.5-5.6. I'm looking at the 1.4x teleconverter for my next purchase.

The Tokina probably won't see much use now.

Rain is no excuse when you have a K-5 and 60-250!
