DA Limiteds

Just finished my new line-up of all the DA Limited Pancake lenses.
DA 21mm 3.2
DA 40mm 2.8
DA 70mm 2.4

All I have to say is....SHARP, SHARP, and oh, SHARP. I love these three lenses. This is all I carry in my 'normal' bag now and it covers 98% of what I shoot which is wonderful.

Have had the 40mm for a while and thought it was amazingly sharp so indulged and traded my DA 18-250 for the 70mm, which in my opinion turns out to be even sharper. Once I ad these two I had to complete the family so I bought the 21mm from a user on this board and am loving it too. I used it all day today at Seaworld and even with large group shots it stays extremely sharp across the group.

Just had to let someone know of my new found glory.

To complete the collection, you've got to collect all 4.
You're missing one in your collection, the DA 35mm f/2.8 Macro.
Start saving NOW!

I guess all he can do for you is to tell you the truck driver's name who "accidentally" lost them from the factory to the airport to be shiped worldwide

BTW I saw in his signature that a DA* 300 still hasn't fell from that truck. We're waiting!

I was under the impression the Limiteds are made in Japan.

At any rate, I smell stolen goods.

DA Limiteds 21, 40, and 70 are assembled in Vietnam.

Perhaps you're thinking about the FA Limiteds 31, 43, and 77 which are made in Japan.
