You can order it from Cathay Photo - 63374274 (or Shriro - 64727777 directly). Priced at around S$1050 at CP I think. It'd be abit more expensive if ordering from Shriro directly ...

If you need it fast.

Think you can order from B&H, USA or this japanese website, that I can't remember the name now.

I better check on cp or ap. Hopefully i could find the black one. Most of the time you can find the silver color lens.

I was looking and i couldn't find it.

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.

Just curious. I got a 85mm f1.4 nikkor and I realised that there is green fringing at the OOF areas.

Seems that the canon counterpart also has this problem.

Does pentax 77mm f1.8 has this problem too?
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 ;)).

Cheers,

Haven't really tested the lens yet. I guess feng wei should know best since he has the lens for some time liao.
