LBA (lens buying addiction) has been resisted for quite sometime so it is about time to step up my game and add quality glass.  I’ve been eyeing the legendary, sharp, out of production Pentax FA* 85mm f/1.4 and have finally bit the bullet and purchased one in almost pristine condition used.  It brings a smile to my face every shot I take with it.  Top 3 attributes:

  1. Ridiculousy sharp
  2. Dreamy bokeh
  3. Fantastic color reproduction

I’ll be working some family and engagement shoots this holiday season and will put this lens to good use.

Here is a picture of the metal body, hefty, mind-blowing lens.
