I think you'll be happy with either one, Tamia. This is an outstanding lens and is a pleasure to use.

What's the big deal about "Weather Resistance"?

I agree with you Fenwoodian. I am simply not interested in weather seals, but in world-class glass and image quality in a small package. This is why I use the Limited series lenses.

I have photographed in the tropics back in the film days using the great Pentax MZ-S and F-series lenses with no problems, despite humidity so thick you could cut it with a knife, and despite being caught in hours-long tropical downpours.

I think many Pentaxians are enamored of weather seals because so many great Pentax cameras of the past lacked them. The MZ-S was one of the finest film cameras ever made, and certainly the most aesthetically refined camera I've ever used. And yet it lacked weather seals. It should have had them. That said, it never stopped me from doing what I needed to.

I think it's great Pentax is addressing this issue by outfitting newer gear with weather seals, but I hope they never forget that image quality is the most important consideration for most of us.

There's nothing "clinical" about the 70mm Limited lens. It's an outstanding lens and if it leaves you wanting something more, ain't nothing gonna make you happy. Buy it and never look back.
