When my 77 was on it's way, I wanted to camp out on the front porch. Congrats, Ed.

Congrats! And I can foresee your selling of the FA35 and FA50 and getting the FA31 soon

the 77 is a magic lens. Every time I use it I get slackjawed.

Even though I love my 35macro, I'm seriously pondering a 43. I wish I hadn't gotten a bad 31. I really like having lenses quicker than 2.8...

I need a 15mm ltd f1.9

I believe in this phase you pay to get rid of them not the other way around.

Ed, have fun with your new toys. I'm taking my toys (including my 43) to the beach for some r&r--we're leaving after work this afternoon. I'm going to try and hit up a few thrift stores and yard sales to see if I can find cheap glass to resell to finance my own lens buying habit.

With what I have to sell now, if I play my cards right, the 77 may be in reach for me, as well, possibly before the end of May.
