Great initiative and I'm looking forward to the results, but the option I missed for half the mentioned lenses is "Not interested, I have a Pentax A/M/K equivalent of this lens"
There is such an option. 'I have an older Pentax equivalent'.

The survey closes saturdaymorning (whenever Adam wakes up ). Then we have to do some Excel magic, I'm not sure how long that will take. Shouldn't be long, but I have a final on tuesday so that will slow things down a bit.

I was thinking of writing a program to quickly interpret the results I'll start playing with it now so that hopefully it'll be ready by the time we need it!

DA10/5.6 LIMITED could be cool.
DA135/3.5 LIMITED (very compact) too.

Too slow for a prime, AFAIC. Shouldn't be slower than f/2.8, I think. If compactness is your goal, I of course see your point. I wouldn't bother about a prime this slow, no matter how compact.

Same goes for the 10/5.6 (and current 15/4) :tongue:

BTW, I've written a Java program that nicely reads all the survey data and tabulates it, all in less than a second! We should be able to get these survey results interpreted and posted rather quickly!

By the way, I would appreciate it if we could find a few native english speakers who would be interested in checking my writing before we publish it. (This would also mean you get to see the results before everyone else does. )

f3.5 is good for very compact lens. a bit bigger than DA70, for example.
there were a lot of Sonnars with f3.5


DAL35/2 could be real.
