Hi there, I found this thread & was curious about whether you enjoyed street shooting with the 40mm XS? I've been having similar thoughts -- whether I should just get an additional 40mm XS to go with my K-3ii and HD DA 21, or if I should sell off my Pentax gear and switch to Ricoh GR.
I havenít used the 40xs but I have used the 40 Ltd. I liked it but itís tight framing for ďtraditionalĒ Street shots. In todays post Covid world it might be useful to have a bit more distance as people are less comfortable in close quarters. Iíve not seen the density of people on the streets out and about nor have I seen street festivals packed with people like they once were. The slight telephoto may still allow some environmental elements if you can maintain a rational distance.

I have 40 Ltd, not XS. And... it gathers dust. I take it out from time to time but all in all I prefer 20-40 despite size and weight difference.
