Every image digital or analog need processing, expecting out of camera brilliance from any equipment is unrealistic in my opinion.

The thing I find interesting about the FA limiteds in partiular though, is that to me it is all about balance and lens design and qualities that are difficult to quantify.
Personally I highly value the output from the FA43 in particular, but have also found both the 77 and 31 impressive.

Much like I adore say the nikkor 35/1.4 G and 58/1.4G, the canon 50/1.2 and 85/1.2 on paper or in objective test on an optical bench neither of these lenses seem to be cutting edge in terms of results, yet when you look at the final image in print, they have something going for them. Somthing missing from objectively perfect lenses.
The pentax105/2.4 for 67 and 165/4LS are much in the same category for me.

It is not about absolute wow factor, but much rather about how subtle differences in rendering makes a subtle but significant difference in the images that is hard to pin down, but certainly there.

It is all fluffy and hard to quantify preferences, but none the less how I feel and one of the reasons I still shoot the Pentax 67ii for protraiture work in particular.
