DA21, no contest. With the funny lens hood people think that you have your lens cap on

My trusty DA 21mm Ltd, and just like Carrot, my mint condition M 28mm f2.8

On my K-5 my FA28/2.8, on film my M40/2.8 (might be persuaded the FA43 would be better but can't justify it).

DA 40/2.8 XS on my K-01, so small it makes the camera look more like a point and shoot, but its very sharp, great contrast and colours, only got the combo last year but some of my favorite shots came from that combo, partly because its small enough to carry with me in a belt bag, so I have it when I otherwise wouldn't have had the SLR.

Haven't really got a favourite, although my A50/1.2 is the last one I'd sell if destitute.

70 ltd without a doubt if we are talking Pentax.

You can see some of my shots at my Flickr account.

I like small prime lenses for street photography. The DA21/40/70 Ltds make a great pocketable set.

I really like the ~40mm focal length for this type of picture taking, but I haven't decided if I prefer the DA40 or FA43. They are both nice and small. Controversially I think might be coming down on the side of the DA40 because it seems a bit more vibrant.

I also used to like the DA21mm, but now I much prefer to just have the GR in my pocket.

Best street lens? - A Prime!

I cannot choose which, but my 21mm, 28mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, even 90mm and 135mm suit certain situations.

I guess my A50 1.7 would be a good street lens but i have never taken a street photo in my life. Closest i came to it was Tower Bridge when i included a few people in the photo. I doff my cap to you all, i haven't got the guts to do it.

It can get scary at times
