(I decided to go ahead and end voting as the voting thread has slipped to Pg. 3 and it looks like everyone who wanted to vote had done so).

Here are the results in order of most votes to least:

FA31: 41 Votes
DA35: 34 Votes
FA43: 18 Votes
FA77: 16 Votes
DA21: 9 Votes & DA40: 9 Votes
DA15: 6 Votes
DA70: 5 Votes

I think it is safe to say that the FA31 winning this vote isn't much of a shock. It is one of the fastest Limiteds and serves as a 'true' normal on APS-C. The vote-getting of the DA35 is a bit suprising as it is relatively new, and appears to be much more popular than the other DA Limiteds. Another suprise (for me anyway) was the relative unpopularity of the DA70. The DA15's position isn't unexpected as it has been out for a very short time and is somewhat 'slow' compared to the others.

Comments welcome - anyone think this vote would go differently or another lens would take the win? It appears over half of the voters prefer one of the three FA Limited models.
