Nothing. Honestly.
I think the lens acquisition programme is complete.







For now....

A* 135mm 1.8

I've fallen in love with this focal length lately on both my MX and my K5 after spending the weekend shooting with either my Takamur or my M 135's.

O actually like the tak better

Won't be cheap. I am looking for years within reasonable prices.

I'll have me some of that too. I adore my 135/2.5; 'more bokeh' would be even better.

FA* 600/f4 - This would complete my prime line up.

I just got my Vivitar 70-150mm plus multiplier this afternoon, for a song, in a lot of lenses with two cameras no less. Definitely a casr of patience is a virtue. I've looked at this lens at least 2 dozen times in the past year or so, but only once was it in a Pentax mount and in that case the shipping just made it too pricey for me. I have to take a bit of plastic out but this should do me nice and having that coupler is lovely. They're supposed to be just great together.

I'm beginning to covet the Sigma EX DG 85/1.4 HSM.
Must. Not. Crumble.

I still covet the XR Rikenon 28/3.5 Aspheric, which weighs a mere 60g. I should bump my WANTED post again for that. Anything else worth coveting? (Certainly not my neighbor's ass.) A Zuiko or Nikkor 60mm macro if the price is right. Otherwise, I'm too satisfied. Until I'm infected by a NEED for all the Limiteds. Then I'll be doomed.

I ain't sayin'--don't want to drive the price up. I'll just say it's a lens that some others have mentioned.

SMC Pentax-FA* 200mm F4 Macro ED [IF]

That would cure my macro lust.

And I'm very interested to see how the new 560mm f5.6 stacks up.

This or the 250-600 should be at the top of the list ... but aren't just because they are so unwieldy, which leaves the Sigma 500/4.5 as easily the best option ... saving hard now.
