Thinking of adding a little reach to my K-mount system

And I mean a little since I'm looking at the 60-250.  Since a couple years ago my Tamron 60-300 adaptall, which dated from probably the 80's was my longest K-mount lens and hasn't been usable for a couple years now.  My longest focal length in K has been my 50-135.  So thinking of the 60-250 and will probably sell a few Nikkor lenses to offset the purchase.  My Nikkor system might be completely gone by the end of this year since I sold my other Nikon body before the end of 2013 along with 3 lenses then.  I'll be down to one Nikon body and 3 lenses after this.  Any thoughts on the 60-250?  I've already read quite a bit and see that Photozone now rates it 4-star.

Cheers.
