Having tried a couple of different bags to carry my K-X and long lens plus other kit I have found them quite a lot to carry and awkward to change lenses anyway. During the winter I have been taking my Q kit on my walks but have missed having the long lens as the 15-45 on the Q does not seem quite long enough. I decided to try a holster type bag for the long lens (despite protestations from some quarters about why do I need yet another bag!) which in the last few weeks I have found to work quite well.

Only problem with that is carrying other lenses - there is not even room for the 18-55 kit lens - but there is room for my DA 40mm XS. While that fits the side pocket perfectly and is easy to switch lenses, I have found I miss something a bit wider there is still room for another pancake type lens. Looks like the DA 21mm F3.2 Limited would fit the bill. The domestic authorities have even agreed that I should - but not at the price of a new one,

Looking back through the forum, I missed one at a good price at the beginning of the year. So I anyone has one not being used that they want to move on please let me know.

FFordes have one but I don't think it's cheap & neither is their postage but it might be worth your consideration.

Great choice of lens. I've traveled light in the past, single backpack as hand luggage, and taken only the camera and DA21. They come around occasionally on various retailers second hand. Keep an eye out and you will find one.

Took me a few years but I managed to get all the original (green ring) DA Ltd lenses . The 15 and 21 are my favourites.

Checked a few retailers like York CM, Clifton C, Park C, WEX, SRS & LCE but can't find any for sale.

Thanks for looking Dan - had tried those retailers (and a few more).

I saw the one on the Ffordes website - the price was vetoed by the domestic authorities without checking the postage!

Will keep checking the retailers and eBay, but thought it was worth asking.

Two other retailers worth keeping an eye on are:

o MPB.com - they have more Pentax related items now than they have had in the past
o West Yorkshire Cameras

No association with either retailer other than being a happy customer.

If I spot a 21mm Ltd up for sale I'll let you know.
