Whoah. If the silver version is $50 more than the normal DA Ltds, I would be all over that!

Edit - it is the same price as the black one! Yay.

Now please discount them, Pentax. Discount all of them.

We'll see if they perform better than the current gen, but I already miss the green ring.

Weather-sealing on HD lenses?

I don't mean to be all 'bah humbug' but I wish they would actually expand the DA Limited lens line up rather than just repackaging what's already out there.

How about a 28mm? Or a fast 50 in the DA Limited line up? Some more choices as to focal lengths with the DA Limited quality would get me out buying more lenses. This isn't likely to cause me to trade mine over for the 'newer version'...

Old design look prettier esp with Pentax logo on it. But if this can fund their future products, by all means...

Fortunately not the case. Removing the magnificent 14 point stars from the DA15 and DA21 would have been a disaster.
