    Think I have a Limited future with Pentax

    These lenses are so sweet, I even took the grip off. OK they have their foibles, as in rotating while they AF, slow compared with the Nikons I was used to. Now need to get out and use them

    Hahaha you're right, for the limiteds no need for the grip.
    Certainly they are sweet and that's why I couldn't resist the FA77 in chrome.
    As for primes in general, I have another tool.
    No my K5 is for zooms, tele-lenses and perhaps macro. All WR of course !

    Kind regards.

    The Limiteds are where it is at! The real reason to use Pentax. Have fun with it.

    Yummy Pentax Pancakes

    Said it before, and I'll say it again - with images:

    and all the "A day in ..." series were all taken with a Pentax K10D and the 21mm and 70mm pancakes; a wonderful street kit.

    I have about 1500 images on my Flickr stream shot with either the FA43 or FA77, but here is one selected at hazard. FA43 this time. My favourite lens, though the FA77 has more utility.

    Listen to my new album "The Drones" free on BandCamp. Visit my Flickr images, website, or blog. Cheers!

    The smc Pentax-FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited is one of the best lenses ever made. The smc Pentax-FA 77mm f/1.8 is a darn close second.

    Go for it... ;-)

    Picked up a 40mm f2.8 while up North, from Mathers of Lancashire. seemed a snip at 269. Although just noticed Warehouse Express have them in stock for 264.99
    So I'm even more limited now
    the 50-135 f2.8 looks so big these days it may have to go.

    Thanks for your concern but I was up that way visiting my son and it's nice to visit a camera shop now and again So the transport cost was absorbed in my 1000 mile plus round trip visiting children, grandchildren and friends. Managed to pick up a cold, or is it man flu as well as the lens on route It must be a going north thing. Devon had some much needed rain while I was away. Saw you had a bit, from your recent submission. here your officially a drought zone already

    Hi David

    So which lenses do you have now? I assume still enjoying the K5 then?

    Hi Lee
    21,40,70 Limited's plus 50-135 f2.8. Would love something like a 135mm or 150mm f2.8 or even f4 Limited.
    Still enjoying it, good job really as it's currently all I have, except LX3 whose use is more and more done by my mobile phone.

    Sounds like a good set. I am drawn to the 70 for some reason, for middle distance detail in landscapes ...
