250-600/5.6 would be a dream lens especially if it would bear the * designation as well and continued the FA* tradition, but I don't know whether such a lens would be handholdable and for me this is my first concern (being able to shoot handheld a super tele even for short time periods!).

K-1 Crop Function

These kind of questions are easy to answer and understand when you also put the image size on the equation.

So the DA*300 on the K-1 will give you in FF mode a 36.4Mpxl frame which if you crop it in PP to the APS-C size, there will be 15Mpxl remaining in the resulting image.
If you shoot in APS-C mode with the DA*300 you will get exactly the same frame of the previous cropped image with exactly 15Mpxl, so you gain nothing at all, but the higher frame rate and smaller files in your SD cards.

This is the more recent thread about the DA 560 and new samples come up from time to time (not too often though).

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/122-lens-clubs/282825-da560-lens-club-le...me-photos.html
Also @Adam has said that at some point they are going to test the lens on the K-1 after the test of the DFA 150-450 which has been already published.

Pentax DA 560mm f/5.6 lens availability in the UK

Many are still reading I believe! Beautiful and detailed images! The duck feathers seem very well defined, great resolution that makes the duck so natural and alive in the image! There is a strange blur on the squirrel feeder (motion blur probably) but the squirrel is again so alive and its eye is really sharp! How do you find the CA of the lens that some have commented as quite a drawback. I don't see any on your images...

PS: there are a few stains on your K-5 sensor you need to take care of (visible on the duck shot). :D

PS: Since you have samples to show you could use this thread instead which surely is followed by many members: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/122-lens-clubs/282825-da560-lens-club-le...me-photos.html

Trying to guess what people on your ignore list are saying from PF members' replies is something entertaining especially when everything confirms that putting him on your ignore list was the right decision...

Pentax released another unique lens for APS-C users (there is not such a lens in any other brand) and from the * designation we know that it will be excellent. Despite that the negativity from some users seems to overflow... I really wonder what are they doing in this website, they must be totally lost. OTOH I have never seen the opposite. There are no members that are overwhelmingly positive towards Ricoh-Pentax with no reason at all! All I see are some rational Pentaxians that are happy when something new and exciting is on the horizon and whiners that complain about everything, no matter what. There is no balance in PFs! :D

The AF module makes the difference on 850. If you want to shoot BIF for example the Nikon camera offers many advantages especially in continuous AF-C tracking mode.

In the same level with the distance scale indicator (see the masked window on the left). That's pretty unlikely.

These are part of the weather sealing it will be sold that way and you can't remove them! :lol:

This is a wonderful new lens and a great addition that makes the DA* APS-C lens series of Pentax a complete set and something unique in comparison with other companies' APS-C offerings. Great move from Pentax, I'm sure it will be a top quality lens. :)

So all you're missing is the next to be released UW lens (after the already announced DFA*85/1.4).

You seem really frustrated with Pentax and I don't see the reason for that if you take into consideration the already available third party UW lenses that are really great.

Take a look since you seem that haven't seen others' recomendations to you.

It's not a fisheye lens its the DA lens on the roadmap, now upgraded to DA* level. Great lens, not the FF fisheye, its a lens for the APS-C users.
