Pentax DA 560mm f5.6 ED AW review

full review here:

af seems pretty fast, (see video on youtube)
but obviously it's not ultrasonic

some CA problems noted (longitudinal it seems), strange for a lens in this price segment.
but the CA test is a bit brief,
CA seems only be a problem in extreme high contrast situations,
(ie bad, harsh light, photo situations to avoid anyway)

sharp, good bokeh

very nice alternative for pentax mount,
though price feels a bit on the high side

test is with 16mp cam,

here are more IRL photos with the lens,
they look very good
