Pentax started delivery...

...of the 60-250 lens. Some dealers in Europe have received some 60-250 lenses this morning.

Snap, I went for a DA* 50-135mm instead but I'd love to see how this lens pans out.. One day I'll own the current whole pentax range!

Hmmm

if the stars align just right, and pluto smiles, this lens may be in my new system budget. Let's see. 2 K20D's w/BG's. (ready for IR conversion once the new body is released later this year) 15 DA, 21 Paancake, 35 Macro, 55 1.4 Limited, and then a zoom telephoto. 60-250 or 50-135. Not sure.

different target markets IMHO. 60-250 is slower and as large as a 70-200/2.8.
The 50-135 is much smaller...more like Canon's 70-200/4....

Delivery to whom? The enthusiastic horde has largely dissipated, I'm afraid.

For those who test things instead of early judgement ?

no angst here

Fortunately for me I just recently switched from Canon to Pentax so I don't have the irritation felt by most of you waiting for the release of this long awaited lens.

If it disappoints, it'll be curtains for Pentax.
