Chris Wilson uses this lens since quite a while. You can check out his blog. I would be also interested in a review of this lens, especially information about the new image stabilization.
Btw mapcamera is one of the best stores in Tokyo. I bought my 645D and lenses there.

I bought the camera and lenses in Tokyo and payed the tax at the airport. Still I saved a lot of money. It is always worth to check out their prices. Right now the Sony RX-1 is a real bargain there. And I will probably buy one when I go there next time.

I'm also very curious about this lens and would like to shoot some test images with it if any dealer had it in the toronto area. The pentax people in ontario don't seem very proactive about getting at least one or two demo samples of their lenses for the 645d out there. I was hoping to take the lens with me to antarctica but without taking it through it's paces first it's hard to make any purchase decision.

My only concern about the lenses pentax is putting out is how huge and heavy they are. The 55mm is a perfect size, so is the 150mm as far as size and weight goes. The 25mm which I also have is definitely a heavy beast and feels as heavy as the 300mm.

The new macro is also over 1kg, probably due to it's image stabilization. Check out this picture from Chris Wilson. The lens is a beast.
