In The Process...

of buying the 21 Ltd. What else is there to get? I bought all the other magical pixie dust primes and I have one of the two non-Pentax 2.8 zooms. The 30-year old Sigma 300 4.5 that hardly gets used, so buying a 300 2.8 would be a waste and the company doesn't make their 180 2.8 or the 150 2.8 macro's in the mount that I deem the most important.

You'll love the 21...

What else to get? It's a tricky question. You seem to have a great primes lineup already, and some good zooms to cover other focal lengths. Some would say you're all set... At this point, only you can really say what,s missing in your kit, depending on your personal needs. I personally would love to own all those limiteds but I just wouldn't use them all that much.

Got that covered too. The funny thing is the back-up's horizon level is off and the main has a missing lens button with my "A" 1.2 currently attached. I can work with deficiencies, I really need to get both corrected. I guess i'll get a quality ballhead now. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the '31 won't AF to infinity.

You could grab the 100/2.8 WR if you are interested in macro. Or the DA 40/70 To go with your DA 15 and have a nice compact travel kit.

The 10-17 or similar would round out the short end.
