    Was just using my 77mm prime, the bokeh you can is generally speaking, always nicer on a prime than a zoom. Since getting my 77mm I've not used my 50mm prime, that whole two week trip I kept pretty much my 77mm on at all times!

    The problem with that shot wasn't the sticky mud (I opt for 'light treaking' sandals, no socks, I'm english but have limits) but the animals that like to feed upon me. I'm a bit anoyed I didn't try one with less DoF. I think I need to set a bracketing with +/- 1 fstop of appature.

    If I'm not drinking tonight (and I really shouldn't!) I'll try and post a thread of my Tet photos (Vietnamese New Year, its the lunar one, like the chinese, but differen't to the Thai).

    are u on a crop body or FF? quite an odd focal length for a prime i must say. usually goes from 24 35 50 85 135

    K-5 still, so a crop body.

    I'm confused by your usually goes?

    For instance Olympus have a rell regarded 75mm! The thing is, I don't get why you'd expect there to be a conformity remember Canon make a smaller crop sensor, their idea of APC-S is smaller than other peoples (which is funny considering the zmofg you must have FF, bregade who use them). This means, crudely speaking, that a Canon 85mm, will give the same frame that a Pentax 91mm would (which doesn't exist iirc.).

    The Pentax 77mm is a great lens, funnily enough nothing is available that competes for canon, it is much better than the cheaper 85mm 1.8, you either have to spend twice the amount on their 85mm f1.2 which has none of the vingetting that plagues the 77mm (that said it iseasily fixed in photoshop), but the 77mm still smokes it in turns of CA, which I find harder to fix. If you look in one of my Tet series, you can guess which one I had the 1.4 teleconverter on the 77mm shooting at 3.5 had quite bad CA creap in none the less. However of course the 1.2 allows for mad DoF, personally I'm not sure you'd need such wide appature unless your FF. So I guess I'm saying don't compare the 77mm to anything in your system, its not actually ment to compete. Funnily enough they offer a 70mm which is ment to compete with the 85mm.

    So all lenses have pros and cons, environments when they shine, when you can hide their flaws or even embrace them. To think that a lens should be ending in a certain number is a bit silly really, the lens should be a compromise of what can be engineered in to what package, ultimately, at what price! I think its kind of unfair that the manafacturers haven't gotten together and agreed a standard mount, obviously its not remotely in their interest but would be great for us.

    where did i say a lens has to be a certain focal length? all i said was that i have never seen a 77mm prime and i generaly see loads of 24, 35......135 etc primes.

    That is all

    Whats the crop factor in your camera? 1.6? 77mm at 1.6 is in tele land i thought u got closer!

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Ah I was just meaning that the number you get out of them often differs, due to the whole sensor size changes between ranges and brands. Mine is a 1.54x, so yes its pretty telephoto.

    I did get rather dirty to take that one thou, but I didn't have to treck far, I had a motorbike
