Lol, believe it or not I was thinking the same thing... i've been wanting magnification between what I get with the M 28mm and M 50mm

The lack of an aperture ring is a bit disheartening, but I've already convinced myself I wont need it

Now what color? The lens is a joke to me anyways, so its looks have to match that
Well, we knew there would be no aperture ring.

I think you have to go with green or brown. However, I think here in the states it'll just be black, white, or red initially.

Im sure ebay will alleviate that problem

The green is a bit to minty looking as far as I can tell
Brown is a possibility.... but as I said its all a big joke so I was thinking GOLD!
Now that would be something

Faster is always nice but this guy has the look for a Limited lens without the Limited price. It's clean and sleek, definitely more attractive than the kit lens. I can't remember the last time I used the aperture ring on my FA50 1.4 so not including one here I could care less. If this proves to be a stellar piece of glass for the price I'll buy it despite not really needing it.

you are right... let's just hope they adjust prices before they actually hit the streets...

Press release entry level price is $219 US so I'd disregard PENTAX Japan unless you're buying in Yen.

The FA 35/2 AL never had the Quick Shift and had a pretty skinny manual focus ring. Same thing with the other FA series like the 50/1.4, 50/1.7 and FA 28/2.8. While it doesn't have Q.S., the focus ring on the DA L 35/2 may be an improvement in that regards.
Yeah, I know. I don't use my FA 50mm f1.4 that much for a few reasons.

One such example is I tend to rotate the focus ring by hand back to un-extend the lens before I put it in the camera bag. Otherwise I'd have to hold my hand over the lens and let the camera auto-focus it back, or switch the camera into manual focus mode and then rotate by hand.

I was just saying that QS is convenient, but I would still get the new lens at or around $150, or more depending on optical quality.
