Want to sell of some of my old gear to fund the DA 35mm f2.8 Macro, somehow just got an urge to have that lens - I think its the sign from the optics god - Opticon!

Just picked up the 16-50 on boxing day. I'd like a prime just a little longer, DA 70 or FA 77, trying to decide if that's before or after a K5.

I think that unless there are some substantial new releases, there's a chance I might pick up a DA* 300 and a FA 77 ltd, although not until much much later in the year. Maybe, and I'd say it's a remote maybe, the Pentax 12-24. Maybe a rebuy of the FA* 80-200/2.8 and selling mine (My PZ doesn't work). I suppose that if a killer deal comes up on a FA* 28-70/2.8 maybe.

If the Sigma 120-300/2.8 comes out, that's a done deal. If a weather sealed Q comes out, that'll be a done deal.

If the FF Pentax K-3 comes out, we'll be taking two of them on release day.

If we get an official announcement of an impending FF body: FA 43ltd. If not: Samyang 14mm f/2.8 for D700.

I'm most interested in the 21mm, 70mm, 43mm limiteds and the 50-135. Only one or two of those are likely to happen this year.

I'd like to get a 24mm manual prime, either an M or A.
Strictly speaking, there was no M24.
But the K24/2.8 was always listed together with the M lenses,
and is as compact as they are.
Mounted on a K-x body,
housed in a bridge camera waist pack,
it's my favorite everyday walk-around lens.

there are several lenses I want. I am new to this (just got my K-r over the summer) so I am pretty much of a blank slate. I will be trolling e-bay, KEH and the Marketplace here to see if something special pops up.

That's a nice list, those first 2 I'd love to own one day too. Good luck in your search
