DA 15mm Ltd

I'm currently considering the new DA 15mm Ltd as a replacement for my
sigma 10-20 and wondered if anyone had any user experience, my main requirements are lack of distortion?

thanks

I'm looking at photozone.de but can't see test for DA15...
I don't think they've tested it, is it even out in UK?

Yes haha! I'm torn between getting a DA15 or a K-m

Can anyone post full size images for download, at different apertures using a tripod? (f/4 f/5.6 f/8)

It's probably miniscule compare to the A15/3.5 then.

Looking at the sample photos from the link, there is a noticeable difference in the field of view between the DA14 and the DA15. Seems like the DA15 shows light falloff at the corners in the room shot and a little barrel distortion is evident. Outdoor pictures look contrasty but I'd like to see how it manages to handle flare, the bugbear of ultrawides. In spite of this, I think it will outsell the DA14 simply because it is more compact.
