I'm in love

with my wife. I also just received shipment of my new DA21 and FA43. I don't even have a camera yet to put them on but I already think they're amazing. Are there little elves who make these things? I read the reviews and posts that said what a thing of beauty their build is, and I went, yeah ok whatever they are probably decent. But really, they are some evil little piece of design and engineering. Dude.

I can't wait to hear about your first impressions. Those are the 1st two pieces of kit I am planning to buy. Well the 43mm and then go from there. Let me know once you start taking pictures with them.

The FA43 is my first Pentax lens as well. It's a piece of classic artwork, and IQ is excellent. I sold all my Canon gears including several L lens after I tried K-5 and FA43. Not because Canon is not good, it's just that I feel Pentax' equally excellent IQ in a much smaller package fits me much better. I have no interest in big bulky full frames.

Funnily enough I also bought the 43 Ltd before I had a Pentax camera to put it on ! It was just going for a price I couldn't not buy it for. Fabulous lense.
