Second 60-250 much improved.
May 12, 2014

After my first DA* 60-250 arrived in a crunched box and my first test shots showed fairly heavy PF (I also heard a faint squeak when traversing from infinity focus to near focus).  I Decided to RMA the first lens.  The exchange lens arrived last week and I just recently got time to take it out and get some quick test shots.  This lens is much better, CA is well controlled, no squeak heard in the AF and very high IQ potential.  This one looks to be a keeper.
