I thought that in the DA Ltd hall of fame it looks like this: DA70 = DA15 > DA35 = DA40 > DA21

So, thatís all settled now.
No way I'm picking anything over the 35 except maybe the 43 but it can't do 1:1 so I'd have to have both. I'll have to personally use the 15 before I'll admit whether or not I think its better than the 21. I'm indifferent about the 40.

So, for low light, for those who have a lot of experience, are those extra stops
really that usefull? (everytime I shot in low light with 1.2, I didn't had 1.7 to compare).
DOF is already what I'd consider unusably thin for most purposes at f/2. At f/1.2, I would consider this for "artistic" purposes only. That is, I wouldn't be going there just because light was low - I'd be raising ISO as higher as necessary to keep usable DOF except in the rare cases where the whole point of the picture was the thin DOF.
