Merry Christmas! - LBA DA 18-250 [lot 'o images]
Posted By: Sailor, 12-25-2007, 04:57 PM

Merry Christmas all! My wife handed me my DA 18-250 (beautifully wrapped) this morning. As seems to be typical - weather has been wonderful; dry, blue and sunny. Consequently, I was able to "fiddle" with the new lens quite a bit (between family obligations]; I'm posting several shots here, given recent interest in this lens. I'm happy with it, but I can tell you that it doesn't "feel" like a Pentax lens in that it seems to be biased towards bright exposure - in contrasty situations highlights could be blown (see uncompensated photo of my daughter below), so I'll be dialing in -0.5 EV under these circumstances. Also, the lens is noisy (sound wise) and when manually focused, the lens feels like someone left some sand in the gears. Even so, I think - all things considered - it'll be a good 'un for a walk around lens.

Again, Merry Christmas to you all.
