Abstract: We present several cases of optical observations during γ-ray bursts (GRBs) which resulted in prompt limits but no detection of optical emission. These limits constrain the prompt optical flux densities and the optical brightness relative to the γ-ray emission. The derived constraints fall within the range of properties observed in GRBs with prompt optical detections, although at the faint end of optical/γ-ray flux ratios. The currently accessible prompt optical limits do not require a different set of intrinsic or environmental GRB properties, relative to the events with prompt optical detections.
