Now I know what it means to have "too many" lenses (at least when travelling)

For two years I have only brought my 40XS on trips. To be honest I have had it on my K5 since I got it two years ago. I use it for everything, sometimes it's to narrow, then I use my feet or just skip the picture, I do not mind.

I have many lenses, mainly MF. But I often just like a quick one-hand snap of my kids when we are on the go. And the short focus travel is also great for video. I simply love this lens and when I see other turists with heavy zooms I grin.

Maybe it's a legacy from my film era days, with my Contax and 50mm.

I would like to join this club and purchase a 135mm. My primes consist mainly of converted Contax' with the Leitax bayonet. My eye has fallen on these lenses: The K the A 2,8 or Contax 2,8.

Somehow I would like continue my Contax lineup, but the A 2,8 seems interesting, I like the A setting and the reviews are not all that bad.

Any thoughts? on the my dilemma.

@Jakob, vildt flotte billeder.

Just bought the M 40mm for my K5. Although it does not get high review points in this forum, I really like it.

Made a User mode for it (moved the Tv dial to the back, so I can use the DOF preview for metering)
