Here's the single shot I took with the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 yesterday before switching to the 18-55 WR for the rest of the outing. This shot is much sharper with better contrast that the kit lens shots but it was still snowing so I didn't want to risk using a non-WR lens.

If Pentax made a HD DA 28mm f/2.8 Limited......

Ther eare too many old 28/2.8s out there for a DA limited to sell much, I think.

I'd very seriously consider a 28mm f/2 though, or even better, a 30mm f/2 DA limited.

Pentax MV1 with M 50mm f/4 macro, arrived yesterday.


Pentax MV-1 with M 50mm f/4 macro
by Jonathan MacDonald, on Flickr

Amazingly the camera seems to work, it even came with batteries in it. I will need to test it for meter accuracy, which won't be too easy given that it has almost no indication of the shutter speed.

The lens is very nice - extremely compact for a macro, but I suppose that's due to being only 1:2 and f/4.

M 120mm f/2.8. I tried several programs but was completely unable to get rid of the strong green fringing, which can be seen even in this small version (around the tree just behind the deer.

Here are a few shots from my annual christmas morning photo walk. These were taken with the new-to-me Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8, which I suspect I will grow to like a lot.

the limiteds do they live up to the reputation and why

I own all the DA limited primes and I think they are slower than the FA limiteds purely to keep costs down. Someone will come along and say that large apertures are not necessary with digital, which is nonesense.

As for living up to their reputations, I would say:

15mm - no, it doesn't
21mm - yes
35mm - performace far exceeds even it's great reputation
40mm - yes
70mm - yes, maybe even exceeds it because it's often ignored as a fantastic telephoto landscape lens

I have reached a certain point in my LBA where I have learned the real sale value of so many lenses that when I see lenses for sale that I don't need (don't need = already have, or an item very, very similar) I buy them anyway if they're under-priced so that I can sell them on at a profit (to be spent on more lenses, naturally).

I know I'm not alone in this zone of LBA. :cool:
