Well, if the 15 didn't convince me that the Limited line is special (which it did) the 77 arrived today and all I can say is WOW. Can't wait to give it a go on something other than my dog or cat

I totally failed reading this the first time. I thought you were saying the 15 didn't impress and the 77 was worse and you were giving it to the pets to play with.

Oh my!

LOL

21 is on the horizon. Likely sooner than later.

So the 77 does not disappoint. It will make for a great portrait lens. Although, I really should spend the money on my daughters corrective eye surgery, instead of on another Limited lens. Nah, with the 21 it won't be as noticeable .

Umm typo earlier K3 not K30 oops. Yup the strap is really annoying though so I have a Gordys strap coming - using a lighter weight "Thefoto" one at the moment.

The quick focus the small size and the unobtrusiveness of the package are great...
Gordy's straps are fantastic. I have two of them. My favorite way to accessorize!

My only limited is the 21 ltd.

I didn't really like it much until this series of images...






Then I decided it was OK.

It's a great all purpose travel lens...

Great shot! For best effect, though, you need to photoshop a fly or something similar onto the tip of her nose.

Girls, even when they aren't talking, they are letting you know exactly what they think of the situation.

LOL, now I'm thinking that to get that expression, he pointed the camera with the newly-fitted 77 at her and said "Guess what, sweetie, Daddy's buying ANOTHER lens." :P

Daughter (to self): "This is my LBA face."

She's a goof. I just bought her a Nikon 1 two lens kit for Christmas. Was going to get a Q for her, but the Nikon with two lenses for $150 couldn't be beat (I previously used a Nikon 1 V1 and it was a quite a nice little camera, much to my surprise).

Here's a 77mm portrait that's a bit more serious:

Got the DA 40 2.8 HD a few weeks ago and the 21 3.2 today. Playing with street photography in NYC. These limiteds are really addicting. Looking forward to primes only (or mainly) this thanksgiving weekend.
