    I am looking at the Pentax smc PENTAX-FA 77mm f/1.8 Limited Lens (Silver) versus Pentax HD Pentax-FA 77mm f/1.8 Limited (Silver). The cost difference from B&H is approximately $200.

    My question is: "Is the HD coating worth the extra $200??". I've a review -- I think on the Forum -- that would indicate that the HD coating might not be worth the extra money.

    Any advice you might have would be appreciated .

    I'm glad to hear that you're alright

    The world has gone a little crazy recently so it's no fun when bad/strange things start piling up.

    I've heard on the news that there's a crazy heatwave in Canada.

    Hope you guys are all ok and taking shelter.

    Please be safe ;-)

    Mistakenly sent this to Adam thinking he wrote the Burnside review, but wanted to pass along:

    Being a fan of the swirly bokeh of the Helios 58mm, I've been hoping you'd do a review of the Lensbaby, so again, thank you!

    Yikes - sorry I missed this - if still need shots let me know. I love the lens and it's my day to day lens for the most part

    Thank you for selecting my image to use in your review. You have my permission to include it. Presently, I do not have the original file but I may have it later when it is retrieved from my laptop with a damaged screen.

    Regarding the purple cast of the front image of your 18-55mm review - that's strange, I am seeing it on both my calibrated monitors. I did an edit and picked the white point from focal length markers on the left lens and got this:

    How much would shipping be via Canada Post for the 50mm 1.7?

    Recently acquired from ebay, Pentax ES II, cosmetically and optically like new EXCEPT that Viewfinder blind is locked shut, and nothing I do (new batteries, fiddle the shutter-speed dial, battery-test button, exposure-compensation-dial, hitting it, praying) has any effect. I COULD just gestimate the distance frame bygolly, and shoot, and with that lovely Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 1.8/55, it would probably come out with a good photograph, ... but with such a beautiful TTL, it seems a shame.

    H E L L P !!!
