Item Description
Selling my FA 77 LTD....sigh. I know it's a sin but it isn't being used. I primarily do portraits and weddings and find myself using the 70-200 for most of that work so this one is expendable. This is an excellent copy. There are no marks on the glass and no fungus that I can see. This is assembled in Vietnam if you care, personally I don't. A good copy is a good copy right? There are some minor markings on the paint of the lens on the focus ring and on the cap. Includes the original packaging, leather pouch and original caps. This item has been used for many photos and is in great shape. Pics included in the comments. I want this one to go to a good home!

What an amazing lens! I understand that the 70-200 is a good choice for weddings, but for regular portraiture, the 77 is a fantastic lens.

It is very good and I'm sure I will miss the wider aperture. I use the DA 55 1.4 though mostly when I need that. I'm wishing we could get something like a 105mm 1.8. I seem to like the 77 better on the crop camera. May just be I've gotten used to working more towards the 200mm range. I am always amazed at the details the 77 captures when I do use it. If it doesn't sell I certainly will not lose sleep over it!

To me it started making sense on FF, before that 50 served the same role. It depends on the distance between you and your subject.

I find the DFA100 macro WR to be comparable optically, but the 77's focal length is more natural.
