Re: In praise of primes - which next?

My set just changed thanks to one of those SMC-A 24s but the steps are pretty much what others are suggesting. I found the Sigma 15mm fisheye for a great price which saved me the extra expense of the DA15, and the A24 now takes time away from my Rikenon 28.  From there the DAs 40 and 70 and a Promaster 100/3.5 macro take over.

So my steps are 15 - 24 - 40 - 70 - 100.

I finally let the SMC-M 135 and 200mm lenses go, as the DA55-300 is plenty good enough, has more modern coatings and is pretty compact and of course very versatile with its range.
