Thank you. I'm really enjoying my new DA 35 Limited. If this is a good indication of what they can offer, I can see adding more to my toolbox!
And down the rabbit hole we go

Having had the DA 21 Limited (SMC) before, and having the 35 Limited, I have to say that the 21 isn't quite at the same level. Others might be closer. But I'll still buy the 21 again soon I think - the form factor can't be beaten!

The 35mm is the best of the DA Limiteds, but the others are worth having too. Each is great in it's own way.

I'd say the 35 and the 70 are the easiest to use, in that they are mostly sharp all over and you can easily compose and shoot. The 15 and, to a lesser degree the 21, can be divas in that there are times when you may feel the need to compose around their limitations. The 40 is in its own little world.

Thanks for this. At the moment I'm drawn more to the wider end of the Limited range, but who knows what the future will hold!

Oh, no way I would attempt to dissuade anyone from the 15 or 21 - they are both fine lenses.
