Re: Pentax-DA 560mm F5.6 ED AW

For sure not a truly scientific measurement of the lens. Its only a subjective review with no hard data. But again lens are to make pics...

In making pics its great. Yes its corners may be soft at f/5.6 but one stop and they are tack sharp.  Its not a fast lens but a long lens. The color and contrast are rich; a Pentax hallmark. IMO the lens is great! But the price. Well I don't know how much it cost to make this lens. Perhaps its more of a statement from Pentax. It would fly off the shelf at the right price, and I don't think its at the right price. But that's just from my point of view. Its out of my budget.
