The 16-45 rules. But the limited and the 50mm 2.8 give much sharper results in real life, and its a fact. I got sharper results at 100% with 21, 43 and 50mm macro by testing them once that i have ever got with the 16-45. I do not like zooms, but damn are they practical.

I took a few test shots with a 43 on my K100 back in May and boy, did that EVER knock my socks off!

One shot of my friend under poor lighting: the details were razor sharp, colour rendition was dead-on, and the bokeh was a treat! At $300 CDN, it is definitely one of the best bang for the buck lenses from Pentax.

Too bad I can't get it yet - I needed a flash first and just got one yesterday night. But my mouth is still watering...

Fa 43mm is really compact, not that much different from the size of Da 40mm

Fa 43mm performs the best with dawn light
