DA* 200mm F2.8 reviewed in PopPhoto

The DA* 200 F2.8 was recently reviewed at PopPhoto:

Lens Test: Pentax SMCP-DA* 200mm f/2.8ED (IF) SDM AF - - PopPhotoMay 2008

I especially like this quote (from the review)

If there's a downside to this lens, we couldn't find it.

Funny review.

DxO Analyzer 3.0.1 tests found near-absolute distortion control, with only Imperceptible pincushion distortion (0.01%) detectable. (This is, in fact, the single best distortion performance we've encountered since adopting the DxO system in 2005.)
