Newest ltd for me.

I bought the limiteds from longest to shortest, and while I was a little wide angle happy on 35 mm, I found the 21 a little challenging at first. Probably because while the FOV is a 31mm equiv, the perspective remains that of a 21mm lens.

What I'm finding is that I need to be closer to the scene I intend to capture in order to retain interest and detail, the wide angle perspective demands you have something to anchor the interest to avoid boring, 'pushed out' scenes.

Funnily enough, I'm using the DA 40 or 70 now for landscapes.

But I could never part with the 21, the size is just too essential to travel and street photography.
