If you could have but one Limited............

Which one would it be?

Note, I said one Limited, Not one Lens. Is there a limited that you want, or have, that does something that NO other lens can do?

FA 43 or DA 15. Both had properties that I just loved. Probably leaning more toward the FA 43 than any of the others.

Either the FA31 Ltd (it's just the best) or the 20-40 for its wider range and WR - the 31 would probably edge it though.
But that said, the DA 40 is pretty good.
Do I really have to choose just one . . . . . .

The 15 is my favorite Ltd so far, but I've only just ordered the 35 Macro. Looks like I couldn't have just one.
(Actually, when the DA35 Ltd Macro gets here, I will have the full set in green. They're like Pringles...)

Boy, it would be hard for me to choose between the DA 15 f/4 and the DA 35 f/2.8. If I could only have one, I'd go with the 35 but I would really miss the 15!

Da line : 40. Most compact, flexible focal length, great IQ.


FA : 43. Same reasons. Since I've never used it, I can't compare them, but I would probably favour the 43 for the faster aperture. Only if it had quick-shift however. And why not WR...

I use the 15 the most. It's the right length for cars, and some other things.

No hesitation whatsoever.

But good luck trying to take away my 15mm, 21mm, 31mm, 40mm, 43mm, 70mm and 77mm.
