I'm interested in this lens. I tried to send a PM, but due to being new to the forum, was unable to do so. I'll follow up after I make a couple of posts.

Thanks,
Frank

more info as requested.

i added a comparison of the 35limited and 35/f3.5-16 super tak
the 100% crops are limited on top, tak on bottom.
as you can see, it is not as sharp as the limited, but it is still pretty sharp.
it tends to set auto WB to a blue hue, so set a custom WB before you shoot with it.

the main difference is that the limited is fuly automatic aperture and focus, as well as having no minimum focus distance (you can put objects right on teh lens and it focuses), and exposes properly every time.
the tak has approx 1.5 foot min focus distance.
the tak needs to be used in manual focus mode but unlike K or M lenses it is easy to meter without stop-down metering since it has an auto/manual aperture switch.
note that you can't use the auto setting, it will stay open if set to auto.

the focus ring is also smoother on the tak than the limited.

also about 530 dollars separates them.
you can find more reviews if you search the PF lens reviews. they are very good.
this is a bargain and i want to charge more for it.
