Interesting article ! And I would agree about the DA 70 Ltd. which is the best lens for portraiture that I own.

Yes I bought one early in the lockdown but haven't had the opportunity to use it yet. Soon maybe?

Me too. I purchased one late last year. I haven't shot anything with it that I'd care to share with the forum, but my local "goof around" shots are encouraging.

I wish I had the new version 77mm f/1.8 to compare. It's clearly faster, but a larger, heavier FF oriented piece, and more expensive. Still, what a great choice to have.

DA70 is a better lens that FA77. (I know many don’t believe it).


I was having both lenses.

77 sold and kept 70mm .

The last is sharper and more contrast" it is like evey digital things in our life. shiny but lacks  of the " smell and the taste " .

77 is beating it considering the bokeh and still has the film taste.

on s70 is based on a 67 format lens design, and delivers the most dramatic and artistic medium telephoto feel among all DSLR Pentax lenses.
