I.D. this Lens: Not so ancient Pentax lens-test history

What Pentax lens included these words in a popphoto lens test?


Outstanding

Unsurpassed

Remarkable



I'll post the link here very soon. First, lets see if someone knows the answer.

Before this one is also lost from the internet

don't know about the kosher-ness, but if anyone knows how to post the pdf to the pentax forums for posterity - sooner or later the link will go down at PP. I went through a number of their older lens tests for different companies, the pdf links for more than a few are now gone.

Now if I could just find this lens on a dusty pawn shop shelf somewhere.

Or find one at all for that matter. I haven't seen one of these pop up any time recently that I can think of.

Well, considering that that's (at least temporarily) a dead link at this moment, could someone please at least provide the answer. Telling us "it's the lens behind Door Number 3", without opening Door Number 3 for us kind of leaves us hanging...

Well, actually, it had been only, for me, about seven minutes of hanging - LOL.
