Conundrum Settled

I'm flying to CA to see my daughter in a couple of days and, as always, will travel only with my small, light DA Limiteds. I also limit myself (whether traveling or not) to no more than three lenses, so I have to choose 3 of my 5 DA L's. The DA 15 and 17 are easy, but deciding between my DA 40 and 35 left me scratching my head. I ultimately picked the 40, which my totally subjective sense says gives a sharper, cleaner image than the 35 and - most important - focuses faster and is a bit better "people" and "street" lens.

As an aside, I dearly love my DA 70, but I do wish Pentax would give us a DA 120 or 135 Limited about the size of the old M 135/3.5.

Dad, can I drive the Porsche while you are gone? I promise to be really, really careful.
