Which wide angle should i go for ??

I'm kinda confused between the DA 14mm and DA 12-24 since they both satisfy the range that i wants. Currently, I've been using DA 18-55, FA 50 F1.4 and Tammy 70-200 F2.8. So, I need a wide angle lens to complete my lens range..

I don't mind about the costs since they both don't differ really much in Australia. Please give some advice....

My advice is to wait a couple of weeks to see if the DA15 is an even more attractive option.

DA 15 ltd is a beautiful lens, but if you can't wait, DA12-24 is great, when you are going for wide, able to zoom really helps.

Have you considered the Sigma 10-20 ?

Hm... Yeah i know sigma has it but I think i want to have a new "Pentax" in my lens line.. Just try to stick to one brand.

Anyway, I've also considered to have a 10-17 Fisheye. God, it seems like my LBA is so on fire....

For me whether the 15mm fixed is great, I would opt for the Pentax 12-24 f4.0 lens. One of the finest zoom in the Pentax arsenal. Sharp from wide open to f16.0. I use it so often for those tight interior shots as well as close up portraits at 24mm.

Listen to Ben! Benjikan is never wrong. He is probably the only professional studio fashion shooter using ultra wide angle to do portraits!
