I've never had that happen to me, and I do use the 21mm Ltd quite a bit.

Twist it in the other direction, or don't twist it

It sounds like you've largely figured out what you're getting, but I figured I would chime in about the FA31, FA43, FA77 and DA21, DA40, DA70 on the K-01.

The FA Limited lenses are SPECTACULAR. There are many other positive single-word descriptions I can use, but in general they deliver simply wonderful image detail and render smooth bokeh. The only problem with the FA Limited lenses is that they do take a little longer to focus than the DA Limited lenses when mounted on the K-01. Are the FA Limited lenses horribly slow? No. But the AF speed difference is there when using the K-01.

For whatever it's worth, the three (well, four) lenses that get the most use on my K-01 bodies are the DA40, Sigma 14mm f/2.8, DA*55 and FA77. I've got other lenses as well, but those are the ones that get used the most.
