I don't know that you can actually compare the two lenses. They've got such a different angle of view that it really comes down to whether or not you want a wide or ultra-wide angle lens.

I don't have the 21mm, but I've got the 14mm and love it. It's sharp, solid and I love the field of view it offers. The cons, which are minor, are that it's bulky and there's only 6 aperture blades.

Hope this helps.

I've owned both the DA 14mm and the DA 21. They are both excellent lenses. The DA 14mm is an ultra-wide with a field of view similar to a 20mm lens on a 35mm film camera. It is larger and heavier than the DA 21, but nicely made with a metal body. The DA 21mm is much smaller, but also nicely made. It has a field of view similar to a 35mm medium-wide angle lens on a 35mm film camera.

So do you want an ultra-wide field of view, or just a medium-wide? I like both fields of view and the convenience of one lens, so I got a DA 12-24mm.
