but I do a lot of low light, hence why I am not seeking out the DA 15 or 21 Limiteds.
For low light cityscapes, the 21 is the best lens I've ever seen.

So for me, my goals are complete. I think that is a pretty solid line up of lenses that has no glaring holes. I guess I could use a DA*60-250 if a good deal came up though....
The 60-250 is an amazing lens, I've had it for a few months and I cannot believe how good it is. I always want to put it on my camera even if I need wider.

The DA 35mm Limited Macro on the other hand.... that one could be the next big thing for me!
I was thinking, looking at your lineup, that you're missing both a macro and a 100mm, Wait, there's a lens just like that from Pentax :P

DA40, FA 31, and DA*55
Those seem to overlap way too much.

Now, if you're a collector everything's fine, but otherwise do you honestly use all of these lenses? just curious. I wouldn't know what to do with all that glass.

You need the 15 and the 21. Really.
For macro you need the 100.
Lose the 40, forget the 35.
Look at my signature; for me LBA is actually (pretty much) over.

I got the tammy 90mm Di macro. No need for the Pentax one as much as I Tey to convince myself otherwise. It's such a lightly used lens for me.

The 40 will goto my niece as soon as she gets a bit more experience.

I know you think the 50-135 is enough reach, but the 60-250 is amazing. It really needs to be on your list. Also, the dfa100 wr. You have a need for a macro and it is a dream. Once you have those two, I will suggest to you a few more

In extreme circumstances, I've used the DA 15 hand-held at 1/2 second with SR.

Actually...if that new Sigma zoom comes out in K mount.. I think my lba will be pulling at my wallet hard.

That and the DA limited zoom on the lens road map.

Right now the 35 2.8 Macro wikl probably be next. But no rush
