Somebody here is going to be verrrry happy! Probably not me, but who knows? For those of you who already own some Limited lenses, keep in mind that I don't own any. Just sayin'.

Nice prizes PF

Is the HD a massive improvement on the SMC coating?

---------- Post added 06-11-21 at 04:21 PM ----------

If the new coatings are better, I cantbunderstand why the older lens versions still cost more? Is there a difference in build quality m, are they made somewhere else etc?

I am just curious if the purpose of the posts requirement. Is it to give us more exposure to the site & the various forums?

I think the purpose is two fold. The hope is to increase engagement and to encourage new members, whilst I think the additional footfall increases revenue from advertisers, which helps to pay for the prizes, but I could be wrong
