Don't know that I will get a better lens for $300?
Highly unlikely there is anything better than a DA40 for the money.

However if money is tight, there is this ... NEW PENTAX smc DA 35mm f/2.4 AL LENS f/ K-5 K-r K-x K-7 | eBay ... which isn't a bad compromise.

mmm I did see that on Ebay. Surely it can't be that good for that tiny price? I wouldn't expect to see any pixie disy on that lens!

I don't know for certain, but rumors have it that the DA35 f2.4 AL is the same optical formula as the 35 f2 AL, and I love that lens. If I didn't have it, I'd be all over this new 35, even if it is fantastic plastic On APS-c the 35mm is a great candid lens; a little tight for close-up head shots, but anything further away it works remarkably well.
