Ok, you guys...All this talk here along with the Limited Club thread has me in total submission. I took a walk past the eBay door of Prodigital and did not hesitate. I went right in. And there, in the garish glare of their tasteless product descriptions, I was unfaithful to my homely, but dependable Jupiter-9. I made the man an offer and to my eternal shame, he took my money...woe is me, I am totally undone...

The 77/1.8 Limited should be making its leisurely way to my door in the general manner of all Prodigital purchases.


(I never thought that they would accept a low-ball offer of $525 USD...should have offered $500...$475?)
What? $525? That's very good price for brand new 77Ltd.
Oh man, and here I just bought a DA* more kidney to sell

I think the 70 should be good enough for medium range portrait work, especially if you have a decent subject to work with.

Too bright to use it wide open but I like the focal length a lot. I could get the same shot with the 50-135, but the 70 is so much easier to pwrk with because of its small size.
