Latest Review Posted HD Pentax-D FA* 70-200mm F2.8 ED DC AW
A true *Star series lens. Built like a tank, IQ off the charts good, exceptional in every way, unfortunately much heavier than FA* 80-200. Extensively tested with LensCal and Yves' calibrators. At both ends of zoom range and using LensCal stand offs and Yves' lengths, as well as a close-up. All were dead zero +- .1. My DA*s (50-135 and 60-250) were not this good. Both were AF Calibrated at +2 and -3 respectively... Colors, Sats, in the field also quite nice. would have preferred ring location swap (focus and zoom). Silky smooth through, a Rolls Royce of lenses... Typical *Star Pentax IQ, needs wheels though ;) PS: LensCoat is now making the covers for this lens (4/28/17). I sent mine to them for a pattern so covers will be available. I received the cover today 100% LensCoat Quality...They used my FA*300/F2.8 and DFA150-450 for patterns as well. Great products...:)
