The DA40 in particular has replaced my kit lens as my default. I even like the screw-on lens cap.
I predict you will have the DA21 & DA70 shortly.

Hi, I dont know if I have anything much to offer in terms of advice other than to tell you what I did in your situation. About a year ago I choose to purchase the FA 35 f/2 because of it's excellent price/performance ratio. I already had the standard zoom kit lense but wanted to experience a fixed length in order to learn how to take good pictures. So I thought what could be better than not to worry about zoom? Now a year later I have added the 70mm and think that primes are the way to go for me. What I am trying to say here is that if you start out with a lens that will reward you with great quality and not ruin your wallet, the FA 35 f/2 is great. If you change your mind and go for zoomies, well you still have a great lens that is fairly fast and has a "normal" range.
