No, you are not confused...but opinions on the internet can be confusing. The K01 is a bargain at the present price but if you can afford only one camera, and there is no stigma to that, get one with a viewfinder. :D

Go for the lighting gear if YOU are not sure about 'needing' a lens. The worst thing you can do, IMHO, is to ask this type of question on an internet forum. ;)

Are DA LTD lenses better suited for digital than the FA LTD's

Thanks. I was waiting for a pizza in Everglades City and had a W30 in my pocket.

Look at the confusion over coatings. They are different. Likely because sensors and film are different. A lot of the FA Ltd posts are by folks relatively new to photography and they are just asking for help. Having 'the best' lens may not be the best thing for the present time. Plus they have to buy, most of the time, without handling the lens or looking through the VF. A 43 on digital become a short telephoto and the 31 becomes a 'normal'lens. *I* would have paid $800
or so for the DA* 30mm f1.4 but have no interest in the FA 31 'cause I wanted the weathersealed lens. The high ISO ablity of the K5 and future cameras does make f 1.x not as relevent as in the past. The DOF on the 77 is very thin on an APS sensor. So for some a K5 and the DA 70 is a better choice. There is no simple answer in choosing a lens. Best is what is best for YOU.
