Don't think, buy it! Assuming this focal length is of any interest to you.

Yeah, absolutely. The bokeh isn't as good as my 31mm but the sharpness is right up there.

That's a real bargain. Everyone should have one of these... It's the Rolls Royce of body-cap lenses Great for full length portraiture on APS-C...

I use mine for head and shoulders a lot also but you have to know your subject or be really good at being friendly. LOL. I stole mine for a bit less than this but it wasn't new. The HD version is supposedly even better than the SMC version.

Is this a lot better than the 40mm XS? That one is half the price on Amazon.

It's allegedly better than 40XS optically, yes - though I imagine for most purposes the DA40XS is just as good, as I believe the optical formula is quite similar. But the all-metal build quality and fine finish of the HD DA40 Limited is streets ahead of the DA40XS's plastic build. All of the Limited lenses are really beautiful pieces of equipment.

Thanks, UV. I read that some time ago and was thinking about reading it again this morning, then promptly got busy and forgot.
