My first Limited!!! DA 35mm

Wifey bought me a nice birthday present.

As many of you already know this is such an awesome lens!!! I've only had it for an
hour and it is sooo noticeably faster than the kit lens.

This lens is such a joy to use in full manual mode!!!!

Great looking lens. It's nice to see another Pentax shooter on the shoreline in CT.

heh... this is exactly why I've been hesitating on getting either the 40 or 35 although they are exactly what I want (no, NEED) in a lens... congratulations!

I have my eye on the 70 and 43 Limited's already. Maybe next month.

Do I dare say that I used a Nikon D50 to take that pic.

DA 35mm Limited

I tried that lens for a week and boy is it a beauty! Once you try a limited it's hard to think of any other kind of lens.

I think it's going to be the 70mm next...and then the 43mm to fill in the gap.
