FA 43mm LTD: In Depth Review

Just out of curiosity, why is there no in depth review for the 43LTD? Does anybody know?

An in-depth review of the FA 43mm is planned, but we don't have a date for when it will be ready yet.

Cool. Honestly I'm just trying to plan/justify an upcoming LBA binge and the FA 43mm is first on the list.

Cool, I hope you enjoy them!

I'm already scheming on how to get the other two before summer's end.

The review is currently in the works. I expect it to be ready before summer.

I thought this WAS the in depth review. That's why I clicked on it.

Do not purchase it. It's too expensive. Well, not the lens itself but once you have it, you suddenly need the 77mm, the 31mm, the 15mm, the ...
And that gets expensive.

Nah, not me, surely! And really, the 31 is too big

My 43 is still stuck in customs. Hopefully it will get unstuck in not too long a time...

And I do have the DA Limiteds I need (15, 21, 70). Yes, really.
