Here are a couple from today. I don't know why I like this first shot, there doesn't seem to be nothing much about it. Maybe it was the early morning, and the potential for action later on, or maybe the flat tire on the cart. But what ever it is I like it. 77 ltd K20D f8.0 1/60


I just like the different angles of the ropes in this one 43 ltd K20D f4.0 1/100

Here's another from yesterday. I encountered a sketcher, interesting guy, we had a nice conversation about flowers, creative outlets etc. "Can I take your picture?" "Absolutely, just don't get in between me and the peonies". I like the way I caught the reflection of his hand and pencil in his sunglasses. The crop is about a 150-200% crop, and it's still! tack sharp! K20D 77 ltd f1.8 1/250.

Love the last sequence, ll_coffee_lP!

I would also like to thank all the FA43 owners out there for not posting very many images to this thread. The last thing I need is for someone to give me a compelling reason to try and complete the trinity

There's just something in the way the FA Ltd renders. The OP said it already, but it bears repeating: these lenses have soul. I sold off my 31 and 77 to buy some Nikon gear (boo, hiss, I know, but ISO 2500 was calling), but I know I'll be back soon, when I can afford to shoot two systems. These lenses are just too good.
