1st with DA40 Ltd

After listening to advice here, and then seeing it on sale for $339.00 I decided to
get one for vacation. I think Adam and others are right when they say the reason
this lens is so popular is because of the price, size and quality. The big thing I hate
is that damn screw off lens cover. Only a matter of time before I lose it. I got to
put it through a good workout at the mall in DC with some night shots.Name:  IMGP3027.jpg

Excellent first images
I bought a $7 lens cap replacement.
Works fine.
Ignore suggestions to use Agfa film canister cap, they are just kidding

(Looks like someone beat me to my suggestion for the replacement cap)

Nice night shots, DC is a great city for photo ops. I especially like the ones from Korean War Memorial, I have not been there at night.

I agree about the lens cap for the DA 40mm. My wife told me I needed to take a long look at the screw off lens cap because I will probably would lose it soon enough.

The manual says that you can use a 30.5mm filter on the lens hood, so I don't see why you couldn't get a 30.5mm lens cap and use that when traveling. Adorama sells a generic snap off version for less than $5. I think I will add one of those to my next order and see how that works.
