I'd seen mention of the 55-300 before - think I'd be more interested in the 60-250 f4, assuming I don't find it too heavy.

I'm glad to see that the rear converter for SDM is still on the list. Though the more I think about it, it's probably just a rear converter with the contacts to allow SDM focusing. I might still be interested in it, since I haven't done anything about getting a TC yet. Too many wants and not enough bucks.

I already know that I'll be adding the DA* 300mm and the DA* 60-250 to the camera bag once they come out and I'll sell the Sigma 100-300mm f/4 I have.

But the DA 15mm Limited could be very interesting in a good way. And depending on what they price the DA* 55mm at... who knows that might be a good addition too.

Thanks for the link Scott.

The DA 15 is the LTD, not the DA 30.

OOOPS! . . . it was late :-)

I guess a 30Ltd and a 31Ltd would be a bit redundant! :-)

But then again, they aren't showing the FA Ltds as being currently available. . .(?)

I wonder what the F-stop will be on the 15. I had a 24mm F2.8 for my film camera and it came in very handy indoors. If the 15 is something like that it would be great.
