The end of my LBA?

I need a viewfinder to see what I'm doing. Otherwise all kinds of composition errors tend to creep in.

CDAF is more accurate; and if you're having focus/resolution issues with a lens, that could be the answer to your problems. That is not the case, however, with my dissatisfaction with the DA 16-45. I'm getting sharp results out of it (although I often have to focus manually to do so); what I'm not getting is the stunning color rendition and microcontrast of my primes and my FA 24-90. I don't think the K-01 can solve that issue (and even if it could, lack of a viewfinder makes that camera unusable for my kind of photography).

Most of the big holes are there because it's just too damn expensive to fill them. That's really the only thing that can keep LBA in check: lack of requisite funds.

I'm pretty much satisfied with what I have, with one exception: I have yet to find a standard zoom lens that I'm entirely pleased with. It's not so much that what I have is bad or mediocre (I have the DA 16-45, which is pretty darn good), it's just it's not as good as most of my other glass, and somehow I don't think that should be the case with a lens as important to one's kit as the standard zoom. The upcoming DA* 16-85, promised on the roadmap, might be the answer, but I have doubts whether I will be able to afford it when, or rather if, it comes out.
