Re: My next lens the DA 43 ltd ?

The 43 is my favourite lens for candid portraits, especially of children and women. The rendering is just superb!I should have a nuber of pictures with it in my gallery.

Don't get me wrong, it's not "textbook-perfect": wide open, the highlights might halo a bit, and it suffers from a little bokeh-fringing. It also loses some contrast wide open, somewhat similar to reducing clarity in post... But who cares!? The rendering is to die for and it's still crazy sharp! I also have the 31, 50 f/1.2 and 77 in that broader focal range, so that's what i'm comparing it to. I gave my Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 zoom to my sister after i got the 43.

Together with the 21, they are a killer 2-lens combo!
