FA 77... the ultimate Point and Shoot lens

My good friend loaned me his 77 / 31 DA 15 / 21 - What a great friend!

I have always longed for a 77 since I first borrowed one long ago...

Put it on the K-01, dial it back to F1.9, set it and forget it... POINT AND SHOOT

If I didn't have the FA 43 I'd be all over that lens. What did you think of the DA 21? That's next on my LBA.

All the FA Ltd lenses have the X factor. If you need a longer focal length than 43mm, then the 77 would be a great lens to invest into.

I just really got a hold of them... I love the 77 so much it has barely left the camera. I will pop back after I give the 21 a go... I am not a wide shooter, so I have trouble visualizing the shots, if you know what I mean...

I have never had a lens that was so perfect for me... I hope you have the same feeling when you start clicking away.

Excellent set - somehow I'll survive with my DA70 but this shows the FA77 to be all that owners (and borrowers!) say that it is!

I bought it used and AF wont work. There is something wrong with camera not recognizing the lens.
