Don't think too hard ! Have you ever had thoughts of giving the DA 55-300 PLM a whirl instead of these two lenses ?
Its actually a MUCH easier choice and you can always come back and nut this out later over the DA 20-40 or the 16-85 ?.....:fedup:

Are YOU sure ? Havent we been right at this same point recently ? Can you say Deja vu …..:o

Eloquently stated ! I consider the 20-40 a "Masterpiece" , and the 16-85 comparatively as a nice hunk of plastic and glass.....lol:D

The "BUG" has really infected you quite badly....lol
I have the 20-40 and would never ever think of getting rid of it for any reason. Yes....Its that good !
Are you sure of your descision ? I mean really , really sure for the 16-85? Positively sure ?

---------- Post added 05-06-20 at 17:14 ----------

For FF I agree completely. However for APSc mine is the DA15 limited.

If I remember correctly that lens was from a lady in Oklahoma ? I sent several messages and offered her $160 for it plus shipping after it sat on Ebay for at least 3 months. She refused my offer 3 times ! Looks like she did very well for herself...…..lol.

The loose baffle can simply be pulled out with a pair of needle nose pliers and a new baffle installed at the end of the lens.....Yes its a simple work around

The key to using a UV lamp is to get it right on the lens. Even a few inches away will significantly delay and prolong the process.

Keep on the lookout for a Ricoh Rikenon 28mm 2.8 XR or actually in any form.....they usually go for less than $50.
I paid $5 for the last one I scored at a swapmeet

I would choose the 43 over any 50mm 1.2....I sold both my 1.2 lenses you mentioned as they didn't do much for me that my 1.4 lenses didn't already do !

---------- Post added 03-13-20 at 04:39 ----------

Initially a Very Wise Choice !
