Ned Brunnell dig up his old 77ltd for the K7

Interesting observations and shots using his sliver 77mm Limited on his K7

NED BUNNELL: FA 77mm f/1.8

Dunno if he is seeing "the lines" like a number of others but I liked the results. Now if we could only have sealed Limited to match the bodies.

Reminds me of that flash game in the K-M website where the indiana Jones wannabe finds a DA 50-135 in the caves out in Mexico...

I felt the same way when reading Ned's post. Not likely to happen here...

I had a grin over his wording of rummaging around amongst his 'old' lenses to find a silver 77ltd...poooooor baby...yeesh!!

I did like the shots he posted. Very nice. Being new to Pentax again, I did not realize who Ned was until the other day. I will say it's nice he at least takes the time to show he still enjoys being involved in the fun side of photography. I know when my hobbies have turned into businesses I tend to lose the fun I once had with the hobby.

I wonder if in one of those storage drawers that get stuck thanks to some old pencil pointing upwards and acting as a very effective drawer lock...old calendars are just as good in a pinch! But I wonder what other 'forgotten' treasures are in those drawers...a K7F body, you know as in F for full frame body?

His 77mm pictures are all shot with 0.3 exposure bias. Does this mean the 77mm or K7 tend to under-exposure?

Maybe he just hit the dial accidentally? I've done it and not seen it till later. Can't speak for him, though...
