I thought my One True Prime would be the DA35 Macro, but I keep getting the most 'keepers' from my DA21, so that would have to be the one I'd keep. It's the most underated Limited, IMO.
Love that one too except for the back focus on my K10D. Lost a bit of faith in it. I have actually removed AF from the shutter button to make me think about focus because of this. Unfortunately this also has the effect of removing focus confirmation.

I've read numerous complaints about focus problems between the K10 and the DA21. However, even though the DA21 focuses just fine with the K200D, I usually prefer to manually focus wide primes. There's so much depth of field at f5.6 and above that it's easier to just set the hyperfocal distance and shoot away. Sometimes moving that little red dot around is a lot more time consuming.
