I only use my kit lens at both ends lately, so I'm attempting to get wider. I wish there's something sharp across the frame at 14-18 like the nikkor 14-24 but the DA 15 limited looks quite tempting
The 15 is nice. The one thing it gets knocked for is corner sharpness wide open, which is kind of a contradiction because the corners are almost never in focus when shooting wide open. But if you do for some reason need better corner sharpness wide open, or if you would just prefer a zoom, then the DA12-24 is the obvious way to go for half the price of the Nikon 14-24.

I recently purchased Auto Chinon 50mm 1.9 just out of curiosity for $20 (I already have FA50mm/1.4) & I must say that I'm extremely pleased with the results.
