Very nice portrait, Sage! Great high key look.

I like these two flower shots I got recently with the 77. I know, flowers are boring!

Terrific flowers and portrait (neither boring in the least)!

I honestly somewhat regret buying the DA* 50-135 instead of the 77mm, which I rented a while back.
This one I took @ f/2! You can even look at the full size photo, which I recommend



This one was wide open



I believe this one was at f/2.8. I was metering with my k-5 for my k1000 during this shot. The bokeh is so gorgeous. I feel absolutely comfortable with the price of this lens based on its performance.

The colors and dreamlike quality of the first image are truly incredible. The vibrant pastels -- even in the reflections on her eyes -- are really splendid. This is a great example of what this lens can do, and if I had any criticism, it would only be that the eyelashes are slightly too sharp.

I can totally understand where you're coming from on the sharpness. The weird thing is, the only part of the eye I sharpened was the iris! Thank you very much, I am looking forward to seeing how the 43mm renders color because I have heard that its even better than the 77.

Some shots taken with NEX-5n. I actually prefer this combination over Pentax due to EVF (easy to control exposure) and peaking: I have better hit ratio over my K-5 (sold).
