Works perfect.

The XS and LTD are quite similar but not identical. The coatings in particular differ, and flare resistance is not the same.

I also love the 40, it's a more natural focal length than 50 for me, and it always delivers.

I have the DA 40 Ltd and it's a very good lens and capable as a walk around but I prefer wider. The 40 will certainly do the job. I can remember similar amusement park trips with my family back in the day when I carried around a Spotmatic with a 55/1.8 Tak, very similar in FOV to the DA 40 on a DSLR. My favorite prime has been and still is my 28/3.5 Tak for walk around use. I like the size better on my DSLR than I did on film.
