DA limited 20-40 f/2.8-4

Well I have 16-50 but I wish to have 20-40 limited. But I can not use almost same lenses. Pentax limited lens challenge me to take unique pictures base on their unique focal length. Since I am using camera for my major, I won't buy FF until 3rd grade. Sell 16-50 and buy 20-40 and 50.4 is a good idea?

IF, this lens will be true, I'll end up selling quite many lenses and buying this one. IF it will come and it is as one could expect from -limited- lens.

The 16-50 includes the "unique" focal lengths of the new ltd. 20-40, besides being faster than the 20-40. You should evaluate your needs pragmatically. All new lenses--and especially one as sexy as the ltd. 20-40--have the coolness factor which the old lenses have lost, which tends to cover up the fact that the equipment we have is better suited for our needs. If the 20-40 is better than the 16-50 for what you do is something only you can decide, provided you resist the "my precious" urge. There's no decision in compulsive buying.

How did you take a picture of me? Looks like it, I think that I need to bite sellers finger off to be able to take it & run away with this lens for few moments...no, I shall not do it. If they werenot so stupidious. They tried to fool us! Klunk.
