New Lens Test

This lens was actually purchased just before the 77mm Limited tested in my previous post. However I have to admit I hadn't made time to test this lens until now because I was more excited for the arrival of the Limited lens.

Today's lens up for testing is one of Pentax's newer premium design lenses. The DA * 16-50mm f/2.8 is the little sibling to the highly-acclaimed DA * 50-135mm f/2.8. The * indicates it's built using premium quality materials. It's weather-sealed (and I've never tested this with this lens) so you can take it out in the rain and snow. The weather-sealing matches my Pentax camera which can get soaked and still operate fully-functional in inclement weather. The seals also keep dust out too, not just liquids.
