Can there be a "both" button? Please?

It's such a shame that the poll results were hidden, or else we could vote the same way people rate the Futurama Neutral Planet videos on Youtube.

Owners of the losing lens, please toss them in my direction, whereupon they will be condemned to the flames of Hell an eternity mounted on my cameras.

You're welcome.

I believe a compromise should be reached and consequently FA43 proclaimed a winner.

I do not own either lens. And, Rondec, those terrific images don't help me to make a choice!

It just had to be XXmm as the greatest lens. Mind you both are considered the finest Pentax Lenses ever made. So quite right it had to be between either as the best.

I went for the 77mm
