reviewswhat are people saying

"Its color rendition is simply unbelievable. It exceeds even the abilities of my 43 mm Limited for sunsets and sunrises when coupled with the CTE White Balance settings and custom Hi/Lo Key Adjust features on my K-7."

"Great multi-purpose performing lens, particularly if you want to travel light and leave the bag at home."

bhphotovideo.com

"if you want a fixed focal length, go with the 77mm, but if you want flexibility, with the same kind of image magic, go with the 50-135mm."
