Pentax DA 17-70mm First Photos

The first photos with the Pentax DA 17-70mm f/4 ED AL [IF] SDM are up on the Contact Photo Arts blog. I have no affiliation with this small store in Grand Forks, British Columbia. They've got some wedding photos plus two shots showing the barrel distortion characteristics.

The official Pentax page has the specs and some of their own photos.

Ned Bunnell's site previously had some photos from pre-production models.

US list price is $599.95. B&H do not yet have it listed but Adorama has it at $549.95 (not in stock).

UK list is 449. SRS has it in stock at 375. Compare with the 16-45mm at 199.

It looks very promising. I'm hoping that the price comes down just a bit becasue this lens could be a great solution for someone that can't quite scratch together the funds for a DA* lens.
