Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 macro (walkabout lens, considering replacing w/the 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 non-macro)
Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro
SMC Pentax DA 40mm f/2.8 Limited
SMC Pentax 28mm f/3.5
SMC Pentax 50mm f/1.8

Honorable mention goes to the Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II macro, but I'm probably going to sell it sometime in the not too distant future and get something better. It's served me pretty well, though.

FA31mm f1.8 Ltd
Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f1.4

FA*300 mm f4.5
Zeiss 85mm f1.4

I have to say that I use mostly the first 3 lenses, and the DA18-250mm experienced possibly the largest number of shots.

  1. FA 28-70mm f4 (Got it next to nothing, looks poor in health but its performance is terrific, great fit for streets on a smaller body)
  2. DA* 16-50mm f2.8 (Stays on my K20d gets used more indoors)
  3. FA 35mm f2 (Recent purchase, still haven't gotten it out of my system yet)
  4. DA 16-45mm f4 (Another one of my daily-driver lenses, it bumps the 16-50 because of its size, and also the FA28-70 whenever I need to go wide)
  5. Tamron 24-135mm f3.5-5.6 (This lens has gotten old, developed a small chip on its front element and now takes the backseat to others but previously, this was the most used lens)
