Wow good thing I found this thread... I hope more inputs come here. Considering also the DAL35 vs FA 501.4 and the DA40....

If I read the K-01 rumors right, there are supposedly 3 new DA lenses due to be released, including an ultra-pancake DA40/2.8. I wonder what the others will be? Maybe this is a good time to wait for a month or so before buying midrange lenses.

I also found my 50mm f1.7 to be a little too tight for general use and the 35mm f2.4 is a better focal length for me with very similar performance.
Bonjour,

Agreed ... I have the DA 35 (which is a "50-ish" in APS-C) and an A 50/1.7. The DA spends a lot of time on the K-5 in order to rip off quick and excellent AF photos of my kids both inside and outside the house. I would love to have a 40 Limited, but for my needs, I cannot see it doing a better job than the DA 35 which is half the cost ... maybe someday.

A+, J Frog

Re-bonjour,

Agreed. Maybe wait a while here, because if the new DA's are like the 35/2.4, then things should get very interesting ... maybe a 21 or 15 to come ... one could only hope!

Only if you plan to buy a K-01 body,
since the new lenses are only supposed to work with that body
(perhaps extending back inside the mount).
