Heh, heh, then I guess I am going to Hell since I've already done one...

Got to say that I do like the colouring of the SMC Pentax-A* 85mm f1.4 much better than the SMC Pentax-A 50mm f1.2. It just looks more consistent.

Regards

Chris

Same here. I respect the skill and effort involved, but this one's a little much for me.

I'm personally partial to all black lenses, but I've drooled plenty over dcshooter's silvered lenses before. The metallurgy talent alone is impressive, but when you realize that it also involves completely dismantling and rebuilding the lens it's even more amazing. I can't afford any I've seen so far, but I'm definitely a fan. I'm really liking the gunmetal too!

Outstanding work, these reconditioned silvered items.
