That means now you have time to mull over which one you would choose if you win, or have you already decided?

of course - for me, it's simple: I already have the FA31 and the 77....

Aaaah, but do you have them in silver AND black? Lol

For me it would be tricky. I already have two great 35mm primes, the 20-40 and the 40mm limited. I also have the 70mm limited that doesnít get much use. I guess itís a good thing that I am unlikely to win

over here, I don't believe in having too many lenses, so not an issue for me.....

plus, I'm not a big fan of the silver lenses on a black body, but that's just me.....

The last silver lens I owned was a 100-300. My KP is silver so I would consider a silver lens, but then, what if it is the wrong silver. At least black always matches

I actually kinda like the silver Limiteds on the black body... but I still would prefer a proper chrome body. In the meantime, eh, I'll be happy to win that 31

does the raffle actually state anywhere that the lenses in question are silver?

or is it implied from the photo?

I understood we can choose. Not that I would say no to a black 31
(Incidentally, I had a shoot of some friends using almost only the 43 and 77 and I was told by the models a couple "how do those things make such good photos when they are so small". Pixie dust hard at work there )

I'm still contemplating if I should take more than K-1 + 77 + 43 to a friend's wedding next month (I'm there just as a guest). Perhaps K-S2 with Sigma 17-50/2.8 for flexibility on the wide end and 77 on the K-1 for some magic? 43 on K-1 and 70 or 77 on K-S2? PF loves those questions, I think I'll have to open a thread asking for people's opinions before the wedding.

When I attended our friends' wedding as a guest the photos were taken almost only with a 70-210/4.5 on the K-1. I refused to plant myself next to the official photographers or in front of the close family so the extra reach was definitely needed!

(Do open that thread, I need more contest entries )

You can of course pick the color that you want, along with picking the lens itself

I tried my silver FA 28-105 on my silver KP before purchasing a 20-40 Ltd - then decided that black would look better.
