First test of my new DFA* 70-200 mm f/2.8 @ 200, 140, 100 and 70 mm and f/6.3 on K3
Lens: DFA* 70-200 mm f/2.8 Camera: Pentax K3 Photo Location: Quebec, CANADA Aperture: F6.3

I just received my new DFA* lens from Calgary, Alberta. We're having an overcast, dull day and I'm too busy to get out of the house. Pictures of the patio door (not very original but always there) at 200 mm, 140 mm, 100 mm and 70 mm on the K3 and all @ f/6.3, near its optimum aperture. The lens behaves like a 100-300 mm f/2.8 on an APSc sensor. Totally silent auto-focusing, excellent contrast and good sharpness. Heavy but manageable handheld. A nice addition to the collection.

Thank you, you're very kind. Now my travel kit is renewed for the K1. The DFA 28-105 mm HD replaced my FA* 28-70 mm in 2019 and now the DFA* 70-200 mm replaces my FA* 80-200 mm. Let's hope for the best.
