It's the only one I've got, so won't miss the others.

The 15. All the others can be sort-of be replaced by other small-ish lenses. Not so with the 15.

And I don't have Pentax because I want big lenses.

Just one...the 35 even though it isn't my favorite. It is the most useful and flexible.

If fun is my criteria...then the 21. Or the 15.

If a lens were going to fall out of the sky (onto a large pillow to break its fall) at my feet, my hope is that it would be the FA31.

If you were only going to let me have one period (and no other lens), I'd probably go with the 20-40 for its versatility.

It is the 35mm--the only one I have at this time.

Can I pick the DFA 100mm WR macro? It's technically not a "Limited" according to the text on the lens, but it is in the mind of many Pentaxians.

Even though they're completely different in character, I could live with the FA*24 instead of the FA31 (and in fact I use it more now). The FA*85 replaced my FA77, and the DA*55 (while also quite different in character) could replace the FA43.

But I don't have a replacement for my DA15.

The 21mm is my only Ltd.

If I had pick of the litter, it would have to be the 31mm for its pixie dust, or the 35mm for its versatility.

The DA 40; it might not be the best, but it was my first non-kit lens, and it's the reason I'm with Pentax. All my favorite photos were taken with this lens.

My DA 15LTD without question, it rarely comes off the body.

It's really close, but I'd keep my 21 because of how useful it is.

21 since I don't have a wide angle prime yet.

FA 31 Limited

The 1st and only wide angle I have never gotten enough of. I could probably live with this one being my ONLY lens...but I'm glad I don't have to.

You can't have just one, not after you have acquired just one. They're addictive.
