Early morning mellow light when the sun was trying to break through some thin clouds.

Another test shot with the new FA77. The starbursts were an unexpected bonus... not sure if they all do this or if this is peculiar to the new 'HD' model...?

My smc FA77 certainly does. I’d thought the rounded aperture blades of the HD version (I assume that’s what you have) would not have produced such a definite starburst.

Yes, I wasn't expecting it either - this is indeed with the HD version with the new coating and rounded aperture blades. I've never owned the SMC model.

I notice this was shot at F8, so perhaps the rounding is less pronounced at the smaller apertures.
