I try and rotate through all my lenses and film cameras, but these have been used the most over the last year:

1) K28/2.0 (Home wide)
2) K50/1.2 (Home standard)
3) K35/3.5 (All purpose home/travel)
4) K28/3.5 (Travel wide)
5) K55/1.8 (Travel standard)

I bought the FA43/1.9 last year as a possible alternative to the K35/3.5, but it has yet to crack the top five.

Only got into Pentax the last year or so... and my lens collection fluctuates as I buy and sell.. but this is what I imagine:

1) Tamron 17-50 f2.8
2) FA50 f1.4
3) M 28mm f2.8
4) DA 55-300 f4-5.8
5) A 70-210 f4

Interestingly, I don't have the last 3 lenses on this list anymore. I've sold the two zooms, and the 28mm 'died'.

1) DA* 16-50
2) WR 50-200
3) FA 50 F1.4
4) (distant) DA 35mm f2.4

I don't really use any others... :-) I would like to have a DA21 or 15. I would use those.

In order, from most to least used:

1) Tamron SP 60-300 (23A) Adaptall zoom
2) Russian 3M-5CA 500mm f8 (probably a tie between #1 & #2)
3) Cosina 28-210 AF zoom (walkaround lens)
4) Pentax DA 18-55 "kit lens"
5) Pentax-A 35-105 zoom

I like to shoot a lot of nature stuff, so that's why I tend to gravitate toward the tele side.

Thank you my friend - I am fine, though a little less active on the boards because my children have been (and one still is) visiting us here in Shanghai

However I think you may have missed this thread below ?
