Photography is all a hoax. Every photograph you see is not real. Just a bunch of computer generated pixels put together by NASA to make us believe we are taking pictures of what we see. It's true.

Build quality of various 100mm f2.8 AF lenses

I have the FA version and I can certainly attest to its build quality. Steel and glass predominate. Its focus ring is smooth and easy to finesse for those tricky focusing situations but damped enough not to slip. Every bit of it is solid, but the heaviest of the lot. Doesn't bother me much as its results have been stellar. If I didn't have it, I'd go with the DFA WR version, given its solid build factor yet lighter and smaller/tighter design.

The reliability of lens ratings.

The OP has done a type and run, though has obviously stirred up some discussion. The best user reviews are in the photos being taken by the lenses in question, rather than from the scores or messages users give to them. I don't believe the negative reports on the FA 43 Ltd for example - and other maligned lenses have given me very good images. You'll gravitate towards the lenses that just do the job for you.

The best portrait photography lenses

There's an extraordinary range of FLs that can suit portraiture, from 18mm on FF to even 100mm on APS-C, depends on the style. The unfavourable distortion is minimal on all the FA Limiteds, and shooting at 31mm only has the issue of distortion when getting too close to the subject (you normally wouldn't fill the frame with the head and neck unless you really did want to distort the face/nose). Portraiture requiring a flatter perspective requires more distance from the subject. Plain and simple.

It is totally understandable to feel disgruntled over negativity this (and other forums) have had people posting on. Members do come and go, but the long standing membership will always compare the forum to when it all began and discussions were indeed quite uplifting. Unfortunately, the environment is only as good as its inhabitants, and the moderation team can do all it can to keep discussions civil and positive, but even then it is up to each individual to contribute amicably. I hope you do return, Paul, and I also hope this becomes a reminder to all that what we post does matter to others.

Ultra wide enthusiast

The DA 12-24 gave me a taste of an UWA on APS-C. It is barely wide enough for some real estate pics, so I can understand the desire for something wider, but if 15mm on a FF doesn't fit the bill, I don't know what will without a great deal of distortion. Indeed, the wider the FL the greater the unnatural space exaggeration with how big each photographed room would be.

The inside knowledge required of those public figures is clearly left to the few Aussies who are aware of the current developments, but it is best left out of discussions here for the sake of keeping within forum rules. Thanks and enjoy this forum,

Also good to see an avid Super Tak user. No more film for me - no time for it, leave alone for photography nowadays. But Pentax caters for all. Enjoy the forum.
