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

Hi,

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...

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/45352-16-45-17...ed-before.html

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.
