The DA Limited Club

Unless I've missed it, there is no "club" for the DA Limited folks.

These are the wolves in sheep's clothing; often overlooked in favor of the traditional FA Limited trio, but easily stand their ground when put to the test.

Celebrate your favorite DA Limited shots here!

(DA 40, DA70, and DA21)

OK, can't let this one slip into oblivion right off the bat! So again, I'll contribute a couple of images I already had posted elsewhere:

A couple of them for now, taken last week. I only own the DA 21 (EDIT: The first image got into PPG, I didn't submit the second...I know it's not worthy, I just put it here for perspective and bokeh)

Perhaps it's a good idea to link the DA 21 Ltd thread in here?

No doubt! That was the thread that set me off on acquiring my first DA (the 21mm) which was quickly followed by the 70mm and soon to be 40mm (I'm using a borrowed one right now!).

The 21, 40 and 70 have become pretty much my favorite lenses (well, except maybe for the 10-17 Fisheye, but that's completely different). Since this thread started with a cat picture I'll continue the theme.

First, with the DA21.

Next, with the DA40.

Finally, with the DA70.

Some great shots guys, keep them coming.
I'll link some of my DA40 shots as soon as PBase is back online.

Just a few different ones I had from recently. The DA 35 mm was used for the first two, the DA 40 for my little guy standing and the DA 70 for peek a boo.
