It looks like the DFA 70-210 f4.0 is going to be a bit less expensive 
than the DA 60-250 and quite a bit less than the DFA* 70-200 f2.8

There is the consideration that the new 70-210 has the new 
electronically controlled aperture, which makes it problematic on 
earlier Pentax DSLRs.

So, if one has a camera the can control the lens, one could save some 
money, and not have to worry about vignetting.

Any idiot can shoot with a Canon, Nikon, or Sony, it takes a special kind of idiot to use a Pentax.
