More photos with the DA 560mm F5.6 telephoto lens.


Here is the link from Rice High's Pentax blog,with a continuation of the three photos post yesterday. As has been already commented on,there were several criticisms raised over the second photo showing a very nervous background of reeds @ F14, now we can see many  other photos taken with the same lens, as well as several with a 1.7X teleconverter and one with the FA*600 lens. Starting with the 600 @ F4 photo it shows a very pleasing bokeh,very nice. Photos with a close to the subject background, with the 560mm, renditions look more nervous,branches with slightly highlighted edges,one,with the bark of the tree shows almost "mirrorlens" type highlighted bokeh (without the rings of course).

I know it's early days and we will have to wait for Pentax Forums review and images of the lens,but, to me it already begs the question;

Does a telescope formula type of lens, lend itself well, as a telephoto in terms of "bokeh"?  This question asked especially because of the lenses price-point.

I'm taking at face value that these "are" genuine 560mm photos,unless shown otherwise!

 PS. Photos taken with the 1.7 teleconverter seem to post themselves as 350mm,I assume that it is a glitch.
