Re: My next lens the DA 43 ltd ?

For handling and convenience, the 43 is my favorite lens: small, fast and has quick AF. Great as a walk-around lens. Mostly though, I think it's an excellent lens for shots of people, great for cramped indoor portraits.

You'll miss close focusing of the 35mm limited, and the slightly wider FOV, though. There's no reason why you can't fix up the 35 limited when you get some extra cash, and buy the 43 now if you can afford it.

I have a 28mm, 35mm and 43 mm for various "normalish" uses and love each of them. I have no plan to sell any of them.
