...Today, may be I'll replace my 70 limited to the 77 limited
Would you discover the reason of the change? Could there be any reason (excluding the FF capabilities of 77th) of trading your 70th that allows you to take such a wonderful portraits?

I love the wide maximally open shots Like portraits from Helios 40-2, 85mm /1.5

Pentax 77mm Limited have f1.8 - it's two step more than 70 limited. I think it give me more ... (maybe 3D) photos, more beautiful bokeh. Well, I will test it anyway

Beautiful shot Suro, thanks for sharing this. Helios 40 - what a monster of a lens! Once I borrowed Helios from my friend for a couple of days. It certainly has nice rendering but I find the manual diaphragm to be very uncomfortable for my hands, not to mention of manual focusing at full aperture that is a real challenge.

No problem with Live View on the K20D But, it's slow and you can made shot only with center composition, because Helios have soft border on the wide maximally open. Anyway, Helios - is amazing lens for "air" portrait:

Suro, I love the photos that you take. You're one talented photographer, that's for sure.

And to everyone who chipped in with the discussion, thanks for putting a crimp in my well-laid out camera-related buying roadmap. Hahaha.

While admiring this photo I noticed how nice and sharp the oak leaves are. I think I'm getting old....

PS Are you thinking that you prefer the 77 to the 70 (or is it too soon to tell)?

Is this the Helios or the Pentax 70mm? What kind of adapter mount do you need for the Helios? I'm reading it says it's an M39??? Not an M42???
