I thought the DA 15 ltd was absolutely not a FF lens?!?

My first and only is the DA 35 ltd. Now I'm looking to get myself a DA 15 ltd, but not at the full EU price! (Which is now just over 1000,- at my local camera store!)
Adam said he only has a DA40 because it's full frame.

I got 4 at the same time on a whim. I'm not particularly partial to primes, so I did not want to drag it out with endless what-if's and other time-consuming yet ultimately arbitrary scenarios.

The 15mm has a lot less distortion than the DA*16-50mm, so it was great having that for travel photos. The fact that this and other Limited lens all use 49mm filters is another big plus. Only one set of filters to carry. This is why it is my first limited lens.

I started with the 40 and added the 70 soon after. Given my current mix that should do, as the kit is in good shape & Limited funds will be going to a new vehicle.

First 40mm Ltd, sold, then got the 70mm Ltd. and sold it too. Great lenses, but I finally understood that they do not suit me (although they are perfectly fine lenses, well build, great IQ and so on).

My first was the DA 40. My second was the DA 70.

First the 35 Macro, then the 15, then finally the 70 at the old price last April 1.
These are the only new Pentax lenses that have got my attention,
although I'm curious about the Limited zoom on the roadmap.

I will get the DA21 soon. may be this or next weekend. it is going to be my first DA limited lens.

note : I wanted to ask "What was / will (be) your first DA Limited lens?"
but somehow I miss the "will (be)" part and I couldn't find how to edit the poll's subject after post.
so if you will get your first DA limited soon, feel free to add your vote too.
Does the D-FA 100 macro count? Otherwise it was the DA 300 for me followed by 21, 55, 40, 200.
There are basically only DA lenses available at the moment and some left over FA designs.

"DA" covers DA Limited (the topic of this thread), DA* (like your 300/4), and plain vanilla DA (like the 35/2.4).
Then there are the D FA lenses, like your 100 macro (which is not "Limited" -- too big?),
and the FA Limited series, as well as the FA (and FA J) relics available at least in Japan:

Seems that the 40 Limited is the main gateway limited.
