Default 40mm ltd on its' way...

I've held an interest in the 40mm ltd for quite some time now. I've never used one, and no stores around here carry them. I'm not sure why this one little lens has not been scratched off my "want" list, and I probably should've considered a nice wide angle lens as my next lens purchase. Maybe the recent K7 purchase is to blame.

Anyway, it should be here early next week.

Hi Gina,

The 40 Ltd is reported to be about the fastest focusing AF lens in the Pentax stable -- and it's really small -- almost like carrying the body alone. I think from what I've seen of your work, that it will be a very nice (and much used) addition. Congrats!!!!!

There is nothing quite like the Limited series - you'll love the lens. I have the FA 77 and was out shooting with it today as it occurred to me that I haven't used it all that much with the K-7. The pictures (even mundane, ordinary subjects) are just awesome. Make sure you post some examples!

The DA 40 was my first Ltd lens-you will love it-amazing engineering and build quality. It will make you want more Ltd's. I have the DA 21 & DA 70 also
