Default Pentax DA 70mm F 2.4 Limited (Silver)

Just got one. Beautiful lens. Haven't really tried it yet, except for a couple of pictures.

I generally put B+W UV or clear filters on my lenses.

Not sure about this one as it seems very well protected by it's lens hood.

Opinions?

Also any assessments of this lens ? Reviews seem quite good, but I always prefer personal experience anecdotes.

Default One of the Best Ltds

Own (4) of the Ltd's and this one is the best. Doesn't get the hype of the 77 Ltd but can keep up. Use it for engagement shots-this one using Ist DS, DA 70Ltd and studio lighting.

Really an excellent picture...colour rendition, clarity, lighting, composition...it's all spot on.

I've only had the lens a few days and I really like it...build quality, appearance and photographic abilities.

I have some difficulty getting models...ie; family and friends...so I took it out to a nearby park that has statue busts of famous, local civic individuals and the bokeh and clarity of this lens...just great.

Thank you for your comments and photo. Much appreciated.

Thanks-the Ist DS is only 6 megapixels-but this made a great 8 x 12 englargement. The only adjustment was manual white balance. No PP which is a great help. You got yourself a really great lens-you won't regret it. Enjoy!
