The 21mm is great. You could also hold out for the DA 15mm ltd to come out.

Like most of you, I don't need a new lens, but I will certainly buy another one. Either the DA* 200 or the DA* 300 is my next purchase. Anyone has owns the two and could help me make a decision?

Best regards,

Toying with the idea of replacing my FA 50/1.4 with a DA 40 Ltd. I let one slip through my fingers today, I'll keep looking.

I would have put "Zenitar 16/2.8" but I seem to have accidentally bought one yesterday.

So for now, nothing. I'm covered for a while now, but if I feel rich someday I have been eyeing the F 50/1.7...

Da 12-24 will be next.
When released and some user reviews are in, I'll choose between either the DA*60-250 or Tamron 70-200...or maybe Pentax will finally make a 70-200 f/2.8. To help fund this purchase I'll sell 1 or 2 lenses.

And finally the FA43 to replace the FA50.

Huh, this was just on my mind...

After that, the DA15 if it comes out this year (wasn't it supposed to be out last year? And the year before?...), but I might have to sell the DA21 for it, and only if it is <$500.

I've given a little thought to the DA15, too, although I'm still leaning towards the 21. It's not very often that I need something wider than the 21 and if I do, then there's always the 16-45.

K20D for me, it's already in the works. Hopefully (crossing fingers) will have it mid January??? Then I will focus on the DA* 50-135. For what I will be using my kit for (Portraiture & Fine Art Photography) this will be all that I need.

Next purchase - probably a Vivitar (Kiron) 20mm f/3.8 m42.

After that.... The DA* 55 f/1.4 is the siren singing to me from the rocks......

I'm hoping the DA★55 is all it's cracked up to be.

Vopigtlander 125mm/2.5.

I received my DA21 today. Will be shooting some over the newyears. The VL125/2.5 will complete my wants for now.

I have the sigma 10-20, DA21, FA43...Sigma 100-300 F4, Sigma 1.4X TC, Tamron 18-250 (will be selling soon), Pentax 540 flash. A fast long macro/portarit lens is the only thing missing. Eventually, I might sell the 10-20 and get the DA15, or may keep the zoom and get the prime as well, as 10mm is nice....

CV 58/1.4. I'm crazy for crazy bokeh and fast glass.

In no particular order

DA* 16-50
FA 31 limited
DA* 60-250 if it is ever actually is sold and if not either the Sigma or Tamron 70-200 f2.8.

I'd like a K20, but really need to learn the one I have better. A body will probably wait for the next release or maybe even the one after that.
