I like primes

I am in the process of getting to know the K-7 which I recently bought used, just to see if I want to get back into the Pentax family. I like the 35 2.4 I have but suspect I'll return it after using the 35 Limited, coming soon, since reviews are stellar and it offers true macro.

I like Gerry's idea of using the 15, 35 Limited, and 70 or 77; the field of view about doubles from one lens to the next. I liked the old 21 I had with my K10D, but suspect I'll like the 15 better, and 15 to 35 is more of a significant FL jump. This would give me wide, normal, macro, and tele. I like it. Maybe use the kit zoom or similar lens for times I don't want to change lenses, but changing doesn't usually bother me.
