My Pentax prime lens line-up.



I think I finally have all the prime lenses I want. Post your family of lenses. Whether be Pentax DA*'s, Russian primes, Voigtlanders, Zeiss line up, Pentax telephotos (wouldn't this be something), etc.

P.S: Has the wrong end cap on the FA 77...oh! well.

You know what's weird? In that set, that 135mm is the one I covet the most.

Here's mine as of right now - a bit more chaotic than yours...

AF workhorses and my 4 most-used lenses right now up front:


(far right is Cosina 55 1.2)



Here's the whole stable:




(back row to front row, left to right: Super Tak 135 3.5, s-m-c tak 50 1.4 (fungal -50), super tak 55 f2, s-m-c tak 35 f3.5, s-m-c tak 28 f3.5, vivitar/kiron 28 f2.5 m42, vivitar/komine 200 3.5 m42, A 50 f1.7, K 35 f3.5, M 85 f2, M 20 f4, Helios 44-m-4 58 f2, Vivitar/komine 28 2.8 close focus, sigma 70 macro, 77ltd, 35ltd, cosina 55 1.2)

FA31 f/1.8 K50 f/1.2 FA77 f/1.8 Voigtlander 125mm f/2.5 SLII - I have the first three, but the voigtlander is going to be a challenge to acquire because I can't think of a reason why anyone would want to part with one.

This is a bit of a cheat, I think there are a couple of zooms in there.

I don't generally make a habit of listing the gear I have but I do have a favourite pic of my prior collection of Pentax 50mm lenses ;-)



And a collection of other lenses I sold a few years back
