First photo samples from DA* 60-250!

Somebody from DPR found this new lens sample photos:

It looks very sharp for a zoom. Pentax might got another winner here.
Look at the last photo for 100% crop.

f/5.6:


Here is the 100% crop:

Typical pentax underexposure

Jokes aside, looks good so far (you'd bloody well hope so).

Shots from the potato market look promising. How does it cope with flare and purple fringing?

Looks great. The future looks bright after all *not in the market for this lens yet... maybe one day.

But dang this lens is huge.

We need full-size 10 or 15 mp pictures in order to give a preliminary conclusion.
A 800x600 pic tells NOTHING to me !

So please someone upload some full-sizes @ 60, 135, 200 and 250mm @ f4 !!!!
