Just ordered the 15/4

Could no longer resist this purchase...with the recent price drop. This lens will be perfect for my style of shooting. I already have the 21 and 40 limiteds. I never feel comfortable shooting with a zoom and would like to eventually own the 70 and 200 and maybe the 100 macro.

I was bit by the 15 controls my mind bug too. DA 12-24 @ 15 and DA 15 will be put to the test!

I just ordered the 15 as well from B&H. Anxiously waiting for it to arrive. I think it will get a lot of uses in the churches of Tuscany where I am heading for 2 weeks at the end of June. For my prime collection I started with the 40 Ltd, then picked up the 21 and the 70. I love their small size... everything goes into a Lowepro Slingshot bag along with my 55-300.Not sure if I will need/use the zoom in Tuscany though.
Question for those who use both the 15 and 21: what situations will you choose one over the other?

I recently came back from Disneyworld and universal Studio with a 15mm and my girlfriend's 21mm. I have tried the 21mm and I would say it will be better to use only the 21 outdoors and the 15 indoor for framing purposes, mainly its "tighter" indoors and the 15 will definitely shine.
Nevertheless, both are great lens. However, with a 15 in hand, I really don't see myself buying the 21 unless its a LBA thingie.

The da15 will be a good partner to your 21 and 40, I'm sure

I never leave home without the 15 in my pocket (or indeed on the camera). I'm afraid my "need" for compact lenses has been disturbed in its slumber... After I got the 15 and 35/2.4 I haven't used the kit lens at all. I think the da70 is next in line, then the 21.

Now, if I could only get my dfa100 wr - the first one had to be returned with a bad focus ring, and that was apparently the last one they had in stock...
