How are you finding the Limited zoom?
I really like the rendering. Although the zoom range is a bit... limited.
It's a little bigger than I had pictured it and really that is my only (minor) criticism so far is that it's not tiny like many of the other Limiteds. It's nice to handle and use and nice to have a little flexibility in FL with Limited quality rendering and not needing to change lenses. WR is good for how and where I typically shoot so that was a big selling point for me.

Yep, WR is important. I'm still forming my opinion but I like the images. I think if I could ask for anything else it wouldn't be broader range of focal length but f/2.8 throughout.

Spring hike up Butterpot Mountain, Conception Bay, NL. SMC 70mm. Under dense evergreen cover which adds to bokeh, I think.

Very nice. I didn't mention that my copy doesn't focus properly at 40mm: it's a little off. I need to check if it's front or back and see if the AF adjustment can handle it without messing up the AF at wider angles.

That sounds kind of annoying! I hope you get it sorted out.

While shooting the wildflowers the other night this little visitor appeared on the trail.
I snapped a few frames but my focal point was on the closer flowers so the fox is a little soft. But it was a neat moment.

Nice starburst.
It's almost ridiculous, the horizontal spike to the left (or some trace of it) goes across half the frame

It's my widest APS-C prime yet, I hope I will get used to that wideness to create some interesting pictures that have something more to offer than just starbursts
