Need samples DA21 and Sigma 15 fisheye

I am looking for good (bright and sharp) wide-angle fix lens.
I choose Pentax DA 21 and Sigma 15 fisheye.
But before buying I have to watch full size samples.
Unfortunately, I can't find them.
Please, drop a link for it or place your own sample if you have such lens.

I don't have a host that allows full sizes, so hope these DA21 ~half sizes help.

Hi, not sure whom you meant this for, but thanks anyhow.

Perhaps you post a few of your photos and we'll discuss why they don't "look like that"

i was refering to both!
i took some pictures with the DA21 outside and the photos didn't seem so sharp when taking photos of things further away... i don't have any on me right now to show; maybe because it was a cloudy day and there wasn't as much light?

Thanks. I ordered DA21. And I found a lot of full size samples of many lenses on pixel-peeper.com
.For example, Sigma 15:

And for great lens Tamron 14 on another site:

This sample as others looks sharp. I knew that little pics of DA21 always sharp. That's why I wanted to watch full size pics. Many people tell about focus mistakes of DA21. I guess they are right. If to watch full size pic with max zoom, something wrong with focus.

Yes, DA 21 and Sigma 15 at small pictures looks great both.
But when I saw full size samples (6 - 10 MPix), DA21 appeared sharper.

The DA 21mm is a great lens. Unfortunately, I sold it to cope with expenses at school, but will hopefully pick another one up in the near future.

You are right. That is why I've ordered DA21, I'll get it in 2 weeks.
