Question about DA* 60-250mm

Can anyone tell me what the length of the 60-250 is when fully retracted and when fully zoomed out? I've seen photo comparisons, but all the official stats only provide one number (6.6 inches/168mm). Thanks for any feedback.

Sincerely,

Andrew

As I happen to have both a tape measure and a 60-250 on my desk at the moment, I'll find out...

The offical number (6.6") appears to be fully retracted at 60mm, measured from camera mount to the front element. When fully extended at 250mm, the lens is about 2.2 inches longer for a total of 8.8 inches.

That would be good to add to the lens review.
