    Mine in my dry cabinet most of the time and hardly use them. Just keeping it for the time being and waiting to see if Pentax come up with any digital FF.

    The way to overcome this hesitation to use expensive and precious lenses is to get it banged up enough that its no longer got good second hand value so bo pian got to use. The difficulty is in getting the first scratch. Trust me, after that first scratch or knock it, things will get easier... ha, ha.

    Don't think so . I got the da21mm more for the focal length then the limited quality .

    Was aiming the da40 all the while but since the da40xs is just as good and cheaper , I decided to go with it

    Always want to try Fa 43 too, but then it can't justify when I already got 35,40,50. Hahaha

    I haven't gotten any Limiteds.

    I admit that the FA77 and FA31 are very tempting though. But no need la.
