This is the third of the Pentax Limited hand assembled lenses that are designed for film. Pentax have always offered some odd focal lengths and this 77mm equates to a 35mm-equivalent of 115.5mm when used on an APS-C format DSLR.

This lens is epic. I have other prime lenses: 55mm, 100mm and a solid Sigma 10mm - 20mm but none of them compare to this lens. If you own a Pentax, you must own this lens.

It is a great lens made by Pentax, but I think it is too heavy and big, compared with my pancake lenses.

This is one impressive lens. First off, the build quality tells you it's meant to be around for a long time. All metal construction feels like the old days (one craveat: polycarbonate is more thermally stable than metal, but polycarbonate doesn't give that "jewel like" feel, so metal it is).

    Sharper wide open than most lenses, which counts for a lot in a portrait lens. Getting the leading eye in focus doesn't mean the rest of the image is soft, just not as well focused! Exactly the effect we want., Small and light, and amazingly well built.

    Price. But it's worth it. Just try it!!!

This lens took my breath away. The first image was just that good. Outstanding and much more than expected.

This lens gets perfect 10 for Design Build quality (smooth metal body) Sharpness Creamy bokeh What more can you ask for? If you are a Pentaxian, you owe it to yourself. Just buy it and you will find yourself smiling every time you pick up your camera.

It is well worth keeping a Pentax camera around, even if you're invested in another system, to use these 'Limited' lenses. This one renders much the same indescribably magical, '3D' feel (how do they do this?!

My main hobby is photography. I have a pretty large collection of Pentax lenses, including the following which are of similar focal length: 35mm f3.5 Takumar, 31mm Limited FA (this review), 35mm DA Limited Macro, 40mm DA Limited (sold this one a few months ago), 50mm f1.2 SMCA, 50mm f4 Takumar...

Along with the two other limited – 43 and 77 mm – these are the best lenses I have and have ever tried! That being said, it costs a lot and you can of course in this age of post processing also get some very good pics with many other lenses. Your choice!

I've been shooting Pentax over 5 years and struggled with the purchase of this fine lens. (Mainly because of the high cost of admission!). Really tough, parting with just under a grand for a 47mm f1.8 lens. Bought the FA 43 a few months ago. Phenomenal lens.
