I have pictures up on my flickr. Not one shot into direct sunlight (it's not the best with flaring), but it is sharp wide open.

What's Been Your Experience with KEH.com Lately? Mine... not so good

Looking back at my orders in the past two years with KEH, it's been only a .333 batting average. I got my FA*85 in BGN grade a few years ago that is working perfectly, but then the EX rated DFA 15-30 and the F*300 both had focusing issues, yet they looked perfect.

B&H has been awesome for selling to, but I do not recall how the last lens purchase went for me. Adorama once sent me the slower version of the 10-20, despite me ordering the faster f/3.5 version.

Usedphotopro is very good. I purchased my OG 645 from them and had zero issues. It just stinks that they have to collect taxes too. Adorama is still my go-to due to their great selection, despite the fact of their mistake.

I know it's too early to bump...but this lens is what dreams are made of. It is sharp wide open and oozes smooth bokeh. Used with flash, it has a very nice 3d pop. Manual focus with the K-1 II and the K-3 is a breeze with this lens.


Oh yea, that seller is one trustworthy guy who knows his stuff too.

If you like longer manual focus glass, you can add a Samyang 135 f/2 to the mix, as it's a knock-out lens.

Bump for a fantastic lens with sharpness and bokeh to die for. Sure, it's heavier than the FA31, but its silent AF and wide open performance is phenomenal.

Get both the FA77, or the FA*85, along with the Samyang 135mm f/2 and you'll be set. The 135 is a beast of a lens wide open and is a great complement to a shorter telephoto like the 77 or 85.

If you like a sharp lens that can do double duty on medium format, this is the lens for you. It is heavy though, just beware. The focusing on this lens is butter smooth, just like the old Taks.

Bump for a great forum member, as he has my old Sigma 105. Doing business with him is a breeze!

What about picking up a copy of the Sigma Art 35mm? Silent, fast, and great AF performance and you could have a nice array of lenses in the f/1.4 range mixed in with the zooms.

What shows do you shoot at in SF and what venues? Just curious, since I've shot at the DNA Lounge twice, once mainly using the 77LTD and the other time switching between the macro and wider lenses, depending on if I could get upstairs (before I got the 77), both with the K-30.
