good luck. I'm sure that the LBA would be creeping in pretty soon .
It's kind of already creeping in slowly and sneakily, but luckily I have control. I mean... I THINK I got control..... for now.

Mint condition 250-600 f 5.6 - or better yet, if Sigma would just make it, (and if maybe I hit the Powerball) the 300-800 f 5.6 "Sigmonster" in PK mount

Interesting discussion - the range is as broad in coverage as the forum population!

So to add my bit to the diversity my lens wish list is (in order).....
  • a macro lens - probably the Sigma 105mm, but the Tamron 90mm and Pentax 100 are options
  • extension tubes or bellows - that extra macro kick to exceed the 1:1 magnification. I did a lot of microscopy for years and love the macro/micro world
  • the Sigma 100mm-300mm - tested it on my camera - superb IQ!

We all live in hope......

I've been looking for a 20mm manual lens (excellent condition early "pre-M" P/K, M, or Takumar screwmount) for some time now, posting wanted ads on our Marketplace forum & keeping an eye on new Ebay postings, to no avail. Before I started looking, I would notice them here & there up for sale, but since I decided to try & pick one up, the sources seem to have dried up..... Murphy's Law.

I only have the DA40 Ltd. as my only lens right now. I could use the DA21 Ltd and DA70 Ltd next. And/or get the WR pair of zooms later on for a whole weather resistant setup.

My wonderful wife just gave me a DA 70 Ltd, so you'd think my LBA would be slaked, but no... It's like giving an addict a hit, they just want more. The DA 70 is A FANTASTIC LENS. And I want more of them. I can't imagine what it is going to cost when I start lusting after the * series. Here is my current list (in fact, I keep it in a Sticky note so that I can update it):

Next prime:
Pentax DA 21mm f/3.2 AL Limited

Next zoom:
Pentax DA 17-70mm F4.0
Pentax DA 16-45mm f/4
Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 EX DC Macro
Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR LD ASPHERICAL (IF)

I've got a nice set of lenses so the wish list is pretty short:

SMC Pentax-FA* 600mm F4 ED [IF] or Sigma 500mm f/4.5 APO EX

This may be just out of reach for quite a while though....
