K-5 + 77mm Limited

I know, many images posted, maybe someone will find those useful...
I tested my FA 77 with the K-5 today and it looks quite good

















and a bonus: amazing clarity from FA 43 Limited

Hey OP, hows the AF speed of the FA 77 on the K-5? Has it improved?

Wow.

I hate you.

I have now earmarked 3000$ to re-buy all the limited lenses I've sold over the years.

My FA's all focus quickly...though I had to adjust the K-5 for all 3 amigos as they were back-focusing.

My DA's all seem ok and needed no adjusting

cheers

Thanks, the AF speed is very fast. Didn't do any micro-adjustments yet,
but everything seems to be focusing fine.
The only "problem" I have is exposure metering with complicated backlit scenes.
But I have to test it more... I didn't go through the menu yet
