The FA* are nice indeed but the 80-200 has freakishly short hood IMO

Pentax should introduce gold version too.
Hey what about adding a diamond on the limiteds replacing the green dot or some diamonds on the body?

What a collection...

I am honestly not a fan of silver, but that is a very good looking collection.

Maybe Pentax will produce some more silver zooms in the future. They look good on the silver bodies.

Gorgeous collection !

I know what you mean about the attraction to silver though ... I've recently got a lovely Voigtlander to join my 43 Ltd and now I want more silver lenses ... preferably Limiteds, Zeiss, Leica Rs and Voigtlanders.

*looks around nervously to see if the wife heard that*

Thanks guys. I'm glad Pentax made these beautiful lenses and cameras for us to play Hope they'd make something like those FA Stars again ...

Yes, I agree the hood for 80-200 is a bit short. Pentax made the hood interchangeable with the one used on FA*28-70 so you only need to bring one hood even when you are carrying both lenses together. The idea is good, but don't think it's a good idea in practical use.

10 grand worth of stuff in one shot?

Silver is the new hotness. The silver Limiteds are just more--what's a good way to describe it?--special looking. You see a black Limited and it could be one of the hundreds of black lenses out there. THE Limiteds come in silver...it just has to be a Limited.

But can the sun reflect off the lenses and blind bystanders like a shiny Cold War-era alu finish lens?

Nice collection! I have the same goal as well, all silver line up.
But that will have to wait longer after I try out all lenses not available in silver!

Really nice!!
