Coloseu: Welcome to the Forum - your story has opened some eyes here, inspired others and started a new challenge thread. I took your path some years ago and came back to reasonableness with the help of my wife - yet I continue to enjoy our hobby.

Best - and thank you.

I'm somehow new to the forum so I wanted to let you know about my LBA-status:

I am and ever was a little LBA. But since I'm a student and don't have that much money to spend for things like lenses I always had to buy cheap ones or even don't buy. I had severall manual lenses but never was happy with them and I had a Nikon D80 with several nikon lenses but nothing made me happy.

But then Pentax released their DA 35mm Macro Limited and I knew this must be mine - and for that price (300 Euro here)!

Now, that's the only lense I own (except for a smc-M 50/1,7 I rarely use). Sometime in the future I want to complete that collection with DA 21/3.2 and DA 70/2.4 - but not at the moment.

It's a lot of fun just to have the DA 35 on my K10D. One simple and standard focal length with the macro feature. Since I own it I do have more fun with photography!

Yours,
Stefan

Definitely a fact! Coloseu's is a cautionary tale that contained many lessons.

Stefan,
The DA35 is a great lens. I don't understand why some people bash it.
Anyhow, here is a link to a couple of pics that I took just today in defense of this fine piece of glass.

Good up close, good far away, small, metal, and built in hood--yes, Pentax outdid themselves on this one.

Heather
