DA* 60-250 thread - post your images
Jun 17, 2014

Lately, I've seen some posters even recommending kit lenses (18-135 & 18-50 etc) over the top level medium zooms in the interest of AF speed.  The kit lenses have somehow faster AF speed than the premium lenses even on a K-3.  I'm not so sure about that.

The top medium telephoto zoom lenses have a lot going for them, in reality.

I plan to take some AF-C shots of moving targets with my 60-250 to post here.

In the meantime, while I'd normally shot flowers with my Tamron 90mm, the 60-250mm can give them a different and interesting look.

Feel free to post your own 60-250 or 50-135 shots in this thread:

Pentax 60-250 on K-3. ISO 200, 1/125 shutter, f/8 250mm

ISO 200, 1/500, -3/10 ev, f/6.3, 200mm

ISO 800, 1/200, 0 ev, f/10, 250mm from about 3 meters (I didn't notice the ant)

ISO 200, 1/2000, -7/10 ev, f/4, 250mm

You get the idea - the lens is sharp and produces very nice bokeh.
