Test images of DA* 60-250mm on K1 (baffle removed)
Lens: DA* 60-250mm Camera: K1 
Posted By: Gareth, 02-01-2020, 01:04 PM

Had a spare half hour or so earlier so popped down the road to the beach at the end of my village to test the DA* 60-250mm with the rear baffle out on the K1. In post all I have to do is hit lens correction and then add +29 vignetting to nuke the ever so slightly dark edges.

All these were taken at 200mm to 250mm so all top end of the zoom. These are not great images, poor light and a rush to capture then but wanted to see how the lens performed and what the vignetting was like with the baffle out. Anyone else thinking of getting this lens for the K1 i say do it, the baffle was less than a 5 minute job to do!

Actually, I think those are lovely images, Gareth - and very nice results with the corrections you've made
