least talked about lens? just wondering...
This lens was the 1st real disagreement Pentax's & I had; like the only love/hate relationship I had in my life two decades ago, before meeting my wife, keeping me waiting was "her thing". ...We're still not talking.

FWIW, I put my 60-250 onto the K7 today and had no AF.
It's dead, Jim.

No. I have 2 SDM lenses. The 55 is still working.

Did you want to take about it?

I actually own one and both image quality and operations are simply superb it did give me some problems:

- It cost nearly $500 more in Canada then the US, so I had to wait for a trip there to buy it.

- It is real heavy. I also happen to have the Canon 70-200mm F4 IS and comparatively it is significantly lighter.

- It is huge and does not fit in my preferred bag in the same direction as the other.

As a result I do not take the 50-135mm F2.8 and 60-250mm F4 at the same time, I try to take my best
guess before I leave.
