After getting it (and FA31 Ltd) I am starting to feel like just to get rid of most non-Pentax lenses, because I just do not want to use them anymore

That FA31 seems to be highly coveted as well...

I love mine - it is a truely wonderful lens. Let me struggle to find some downsides:

- It is a large lens, but that is a natural consequence of f2.8
- It has a limited range compared with some, but if you want quality buy this. If you want flexibilty, but a superzoom P&S.
- I had the option of a 77mm for $450 when I got mine. I so wish I'd got the 77mm instead. Then I would have got the 50-135 as well and had both ;}
- It is a little soft at 135mm, minimum focus, f2.8, but it's not a macro lens.
