Fuji has better glass.
At the prices they charge, I hope they have better glass.

Which $200 Fuji X lens is as good as the DA 35 f/2.4?

Sorry, it was a trick question: There are no $200 Fuji X lenses.

The topic was not who has cheaper glass.

Did you miss my post? You took the easy question... now, show us the expensive glass is better than DA 35.24. We await your evidence. Is this the case where the $200 glass whips the but off the more expensive "hot shot" glass? You didn't even answer what he asked.

We await your evidence.

....., or even if they agree with your analysis, at all
To paraphrase that; Which is better; chocolate or vanilla?
Is the greatest lens ever made the one that you like best, or the one someone else likes best?
The two greatest lenses ever made are the one I used to have but sold, traded, or lost, and the one I most want next.

Is that like the two best days in a boat-owners life: The day you buy it, and the day you sell it?

So "cheaper" isn't a measure of "better"?

If you want to compare lenses on the web, then Flickr is your friend. If you ever get around to actually making a print, then you should rent the Fuji and give it a try. If you are happy with the quality you have, then good for you. You will save a lot of money.

Ok, so, just so I understand this: If I'm on a limited budget, and I have x amount of dollars, Pentax glass is "better", but if I have an unlimited budget and an infinite amount of dollars, Fuji glass is "better".

Does that sum up your position?

You know you can buy fish, right? And they're a lot cheaper than a boat.

I don't think he meant you specifically; I think he meant the Royal you, like Kate, and Wills, and the Royal Fetus.

At least that's what I hope he meant.

I knew there was the "Royal We" as in "We Are Not Amused" but i didn't realize there was a "Royal You". You learn something new every day. I feel quite Royal now, I think I'll abolish myself, at least for the night.

Because the K-mount is built for a FF sensor and lens. The Fuji X-mount is built for APS-C from the ground up.

I wouldn't recommend putting your DA primes up against the Fuji. 14mm? Fuji definitely wins. 21/23mm Fuji definitely wins. 56mm/55mm Fuji definitely wins. Pentax wins with the 31/35mm, but that's about it. I haven't tried the Fuji 18mm, 27mm, or the 60mm, but the ones I have tried have had fantastic IQ. The Fuji bodies are not as good as the K-3, but Fuji has better glass.
Too bad those Fuji lenses aren't stabilized, eh? And too bad those Pentax DA primes also aren't sta-- oh, right.
