DFA* 70-200mm - Ninth set of images - Morning walk around town

Went for a morning walk with the DFA* 70-200mm and K-3 - some images attached.

Heard from Asahi Man regarding my DFA* 70-200mm:

"Hey hey...you are only the first consumer with the first 70-200 in the consumers world
It is the result of a good contact with the Ricoh distribution.
A hand full of lenses are out in the world and you got it first
So, it is a serial production lens
It was clear for me, cause your lens is at 2.8 200 a big step better than my lens ;-)"

So the delay of the lens was indeed due to a mechanical design change to create a higher level of optical performance and not a re-design to improve handling issue.
