Hello Pentaxians,

I am tempting to buy the DA* 60-250mm, but could not find review about it.

Does anyone have any advice on this lens or compatible make?

I am using the K20D.

Thanks.

Actually, now that you mention it, what price range does the FA*80-200/2.8 fall under?

Depends on condition, priced between 2k to 3k SGD. A mint condition copy can easily cost around $2500SGD :)

The FA*2870 is around 1.6 to 2k ...

Dun have an immediate need to get 28-70 range...
More keen to look at the 7/80-2/300 range...
Let's see how things goes first...
There's still the K20D to upgrade to, the MacBook I've been eyeing since last year, that HTC Touch Pro that was just launched which I need to replace my phone that keeps hanging, a bigger dry cabinet, the list goes on.... :(

Is FA* for film SLR?

Since the DA* 60-250mm F4 will be availbale by year end, I have to settle with my FA 28-200mm F3.8 when I go to the F1 this Sunday.

I bought the walk about-ticket and my bro gave me a grand stand seat opposite the floating platform. Hope I am not too far away to catch the action.

What knob? You refering the round knob? It is on the lens tripod collar for tightening and loosening the tripod collar so that you can tilt the camera.
tripod collar?
so the tripod is attatched to the lens? :confused:

why not...its simple physics and more practical... lens heavier than the camera, if tripod mount on the camera, the camera will bear the entire weight of the heavy lens, the stress on the camera mount will be great... mount the tripod on the lens, the camera mount oni has to bear its on weight... simple :)

It's just base physics of Equilibrium.
