Those are pretty cool. Seldom seeing someone got both the FA and DA LE lens set

So you got 10 lenses from 10mm to 77mm? Guess you like shooting in this range so much

Cheers!
Well the DA ones mainly serves the DS (my compact camera), the FA ones the K10D.

Yep i really like that FL range, actually the 8 of them are below 50mm and the 7 from 31 and below. i really do like wide angle stuff

Nice. Do you actually use both the DA's and FA's? I've been tossing back and forth over that 70 versus 77 thing, and seeing your lineup almost has me thinking just get them both. hehehe
Yep, that is what I did... No actually I like to have the 3 DA limiteds, they make out for a wonderful party camera when coupled with the DS.

Thomas, Love the stacked filter ring "hood" on the 31mm. I did that for my 43mm for awhile and found some older Tak metal screw on hoods that do a great job to replace the stacked filter rings (without glass).
Actually Gene used to sell them from the marketplace
Hmm... sounds interesting...

Nice collection!
What for are these extensions? Are the normal hoods to short (Crop?)?

Best,
Rainer
No not for a full frame view, but due to the reduced FOV, we are able to use longer and more effective hoods.

I got a better one from Heliopan (kinda like a filter extension) for mine:

Frank, that looks very nice, your 31 solution... do you have a link to where to get it?

Yeah, the normal hoods are for full frame, not really suitable for APSC. Besides, I feel the bundled hoods for these FA Limited lenses are not protective enough, especially the one on FA31.

I bought it in a local store. Never found any online store selling it, sorry ...

Yes, we have one of those Sony Mavicas at work still. It was IT approved at the time simply because you could use a 3 1/4" floppy as film lol.

I used to have one of those as well ... the amount of floppy disks I used to have to carry was crazy.

Mine was black though ... not silver.

Okay, picture this.... A K100D WITH KIT LENS.

That's mine.



No, actually, I'm just kidding. I do have a few other lenses [50mm 1.4, 100mm, 50-200mm] but I had to ask --- besides LBA, what would someone need 21 lenses for?? I'm not being sarcastic, I'd really like to know. I am always wondering if I should/could/would buy another lens, which one would it be??

Hey all - great pictures of wonderful gear! Now, if you all could post your street addresses as well....

:-)

Anyway, I have nothing terribly exciting to show, but maybe I'll get a Limited 40 this year. Who knows!

Hi Frank, is the 31mm lens hood the Heliopan 58mm LONG hood? I've only found two sources on the net, One at B&H and the other at Teamworks UK. The old Tak 49mm long hoods work OK with the 43 and 77 but I need a 58mm for the 31.

Take care,

David

Well I am not sure why people would need 21 lenses, but I guess I know why people own a lot that on the paper seems similar.

In my own case I own a DA21, A24 and FA*24. however there is a real difference between the 21 and 24m FOV.
My reason for owning both the 24mm lenses is quite simple.
The FA*24 is big bright and a wonderful AF lens, my standard walkabout lens.
The A24, has that precise MF feel, is very compact and excellent for landscapes (which is MF work for me anyway).
Furthermore its minimal focus distance is closer than the FA*24, which actually comes in handy at times.

Similar examples could be the DA40 vs. FA43 or DA70 vs FA77... different reasoning behind but same logic as above.

What I am trying to say is that different lenses renders differently and has different strongsides. having a lot to choose from gives you options...

That said LBA is a big factor too
