Have been a zoom lover my whole life until I discovered primes and started with the DA 40.

Now its
DA 40 and stitching
DA 55-300 for everything else
and soon getting a 16-45 as a standby.

Wishlist 10-17 and/or 8-16 and/or 12-24 and and.....etc.

DA 70mm
DA 40mm
DA 200mm

I actually love wideangle but when I look to my photo database there is not much with 21mm or 15mm.

When we go out, my wife and I typically share 4 lenses between 2 bodies - the DA Limited 21, 35Macro, 40, and 70. Nice and compact.

Pentax DA* 16-50
Sigma 70-200
Pentax F 1.7/50 or Sigma 1.8/28 - not sure which one I use more.

These are also the only lenses I will keep, the other will have to go.

050MM Takumar
105MM Takumar
135MM Rikenon

These are my 3 main lenses for my Pentax cameras. I'm going to replace the Rikenon with another Takumar someday and also grab me a wide angle and 200/300MM Takumars at some point. First two are staying but the rest of the lenses in my kit are non Pentax. I have one Canon and that's getting sold with the camera it came with, couple of mystery lenses, some Minolta stuff, but no camera to fit those.

M 50/1.7 on my MX
M 35/2 on my K2000 (i wish it was a FA)
and the 77 on both

I'm looking for some (cheap) A or later 35mm and a wider angle (maybe 20-24) for eliminating the annoying stop-down metering with older K-mounts.
