Thinking about buying a DA 35mm f:2.4 AL

Had both DA50mm and DA35mm and they are both good lenses. But in the end I sold them since I didn't use them enough. (Got the FA50mm Macro and Fujinon XF 35mm)
But you can't beat the price and quality for the DA 50 and 35mm so if you have the extra cash I would go for it.
I do envy luftfluss who got the DA 35mm macro as a Christmas gift, always wanted to try out that lens :)

DA 50/1.8 or DA35/2.4 or ?

I would go for the DA 50mm, just because it's F1.8
Or save up money for the FA31mm.

Need a lens recommendation for my mom between DA 18-135, Sigma 18-250, and DA 55-300

I would go for the 18-250mm lens or why not the Tamron 18-200mm lens?

International travel, is it worth upgrading from K-30 to K-3/3ii?

If you don't plan to go hiking I would not think you would use your 55-300mm lens on your trip to Japan.
I never find the use for a longer lens when I am in a big city like Tokyo or Kyoto but everyone has their own style when taking photos.

*Sigh* Been thinking about light field photography and Lytro since they announce their first version of the Lytro camera... and to my surprise, this Black Friday they had it on a huge sale in Sweden. Was able to grab a Lytro Illum for less than 240 USD.
Since it's December I havn't had the time to play around with it much so I will give you guys an update here later.

How many lenses do you have for your MX?
Fujifilm lenses are not that cheap and that's the sole reason I haven't invested more into it...

Trip to the Tropics: Fungus concern??

I've been travelling to a lot of humid places in Asia for longer period of times and so far I have not got fungus on any of my photo equipment.
I would recommend to bring some extra silica pads and place in your camera and lens bag. And make sure your gear is stored where there is some ventilation.
The ceiling fans should be enough as you will not be there for a long period of time.

Bring a UWA lens, a macro lens and a telezoom lens to Penang. Great to have if you plan to visit the Butterfly garden or any of the temples there.

fuji x30 any though?

I got myself a Fuji X-Pro1 with the 18mm lens. Now I also got the Fujinon 35mm lens.
Was considering a Ricoh GR or a Fuji X20/30 but was able to find a very good deal on a new X-Pro1 body and 18mm lens.
Very happy as it's such a good and much smaller camera than my K-30 and K-3.
Brought my K-3 and my Fuji on a recent trip to Japan and to be honest I used the Fuji 75% of all my shoots.
You might want to have a look at the upcoming X-T10 as well. A lot of feat at a good price.
Just my 2 cents.

Can you give me your feedback regarding the grip of the K-S2 vs the K-30? Not a single store in Stockholm has it in stock so can't get my hands on it and try it out...
I hope it's not smaller than the K-30.
