I just got my lens back from Precision and took it out shooting yesterday a little bit. It does seem to be in good shape and had a quick turn around time from them.

You had to send a brand new lens? Was it for calibration?

My wife was shooting a wedding and set the camera down and it fell a couple of feet and messed up the mount on the lens.

You know, it wasn't the fall that hurt the lens, it was the sudden stop...

Yeah. It's that instant where potential energy becomes kinetic energy where lots of nasty things happen.

I guess she had the grip on and an external flash and thought it was a lot steadier than it was when she set it down.

Nice to see you are happy with it

I like the flare resistance and sharpness of the small brother, the 17-50 so this lens might be logical upgrade when I get FF

Nice mood in both images - thank's for sharing. This lens is one on my wish list. Next year I have to wait until I know what's about the Pentax FF and prioritize against DFA150-450.
