Very nice words indeed. I found that the translation from is probably closer to the original meaning than the Google translation that gets used when choosing a language at the top of the page. Though with deepl, you can't embed a whole website at once (unless installing a browser addon), but copying the text over passage by passage works well.

nice read, especially with respect that the FA Limiteds aren't supposed to be super-corrected darlings of the MTF chart crowd....

on a side note, I've purchased several lenses from Map Camera and they always exceed my expectations...

I assume he shot these with the SMC versions? I canít really tell the image clearly shows a silver FA 43 And the C of SMC is visible.

Imagine if when the 31 or 77 LTD came out the lens test junkies had today's test science to use? They would describe these lenses as the most irregular; CA ridden pieces of junk to hit the market.

One reason I don't bother with lens reviews these days. They cannot see past their charts.

I guess the Limited philosophy really is unique.
