The old ones will be around for many years to come - on the second-hand market.

You won't get mine, though

On a more serious note, I wonder what the HDs will do to the second hand prices of the old limiteds... Perhaps, in the long run, it will make that elusive 70mm closer to reality.

Yup. It's still a nice consumer lens as it's always been, but now it has weather sealing. That's the main difference in practice.

An in-depth review will be posted as soon as it's done.

Does the HD DA21 still have the 'green blob' flare problem when there is a bright light source at a particular angle - centre mid bottom on this snap ?
