The DA Limiteds are very contrasty lenses, and I think when they have a wide DR to play with it really makes the images pop!

The 35mm 2.8 Ltd is my primary walkaround and I love it.

It is a 'well known fact' that the 35mm f2.8 macro can't focus to infinity

Probably my all-around favorite lens. Searching hard for the Tokina version for my D300 as well. :P

That's what I read.. But it clearly has the 'infinity' symbol on the focus scale..

Nice lens. Even with the K5, there is one reason I have not been able to use it as a walk-around: too hard to shoot kids running around. Its hit or miss in those situations.

But for still life; its great

What rubbish! Never had such a problem with my DA 35mm Macro, and I use this lens a lot.
