    everybody would buy a lens only for its function & performance I suppose..
    let's see.....................

    no, but i don't mind getting the pentax 40mm f/2.8 pancake just because i can, it's that cute

    But looking at your signature, you sure looks like you are collecting lenses.

    of course, i haven't gotten it yet, and i don't think i ever will. just say say for fun only.

    that's the trouble with being too pragmatic.

    i happened to buy N50f1.8 which is one of the cheapest prime coz it was good-looking to me.. though I almost never used it since I already got 3 lenses in 50mm range..
    i thought many times to sell it off when i needed money.. but i just like it so i keep it
