I've had the DA 35mm 2.8 macro Ltd And it is really something speciel for environmental close up photography. To get full macro 1:1 it distance is too close to the subject to be workable at 14 cm. You should check the web for images taken with it. Especially a user named Keitha M. made some wonderful images with it back in 2008 she was very active on this forum. Unfortunately alot has been lost from that time here on DP review. The HD version is probable worth getting as the bokeh is likely improved with the additional tuning of then aperture blades which are rounded instead of straight in the original version.

Thanks; All I can find of her are some (amazing) 100mm macro photos. And some lessons: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/2437004 which are all to familiar!
