Re: My next lens the DA 43 ltd ?


The 35Ltd and 43mm Ltd are very different lenses.  You seem like you've written off the idea of getting your 35mm fixed but it may be repairable for a very much cheaper price than any new lens.  If you enjoyed it, why not at east get a quote ?

I passed on the 43mm Ltd.  Some love it, some don't.  The 43mm Ltd has outstanding centre sharpness but is certainly not as sharp in the corners as the 40mm Ltd at any aperture according to the Photozone test report.  That may not be critical to you for street usage, but it was to me for landscape photography.  I bought the 40mm but have in fact wound up not using the FL all that much.  I've got the 31mm Ltd, the FA 50/1.4 & FA 50/2.8 and a 70mm Ltd and the 40mm just sort of doesn't get used in between.  I'm probably going to sell it.

Enjoy whatever you buy.

Cheers, Rod
