Soo hard to justfy though. It seems like a 12-24 (1100) or waiting for the 16-50 2.8 (who knows how much, but probably at leat that price) would be a better idea. The 50 1.4 on APS-C is a little like the 77 1.8 on film
(yes yes, less 3d effect and no metal construction. bleah)
Read from the link below, the 3D effect is less pronounce or little on the DSLR because it was design for film. The purpose of owning one is more of joy, pride and song. I was thinking of getting one eventually too for the bokeh.
Pay attention to Hates13 as he is the well respected knowledgeable guy in the forum. Hope this helps.
Hello fellow pentaxian. Thank you guys for all the quick reply and info. I was lucky enough to have purchase the 77mm limited in malaysia. Black color body which is what i wanted. Haven't have the time to really test it. But I must say some of the shots are truely exceptional. Construction of the lens is built like a tank. Now just have to find something to shot. He he he.
Yes, 77/1.8 has the same 'problem' at big aperture. It goes away when stop down abit. That's pretty common to most fast lenses I think. My 50/1.2 has the same 'problem' (well, I don't call it a problem but more or less like a characteristic ).
