My first sample pics of DA21mm
Posted By: dsport, 01-01-2009, 10:31 PM

A nice lens but not easy to use for me.
My impression is really a sharp lens, but bokeh a little bit harsh and not so beautiful. Also anti-flare a little bit weak when shooting directly towards the sunlight. However, the color is beautiful and it is a great lens for snap and people.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks for watching.

#3 and #4 is great. Althought they're jsut "test shots" I'd say they're more than saleable.

The bokeh doesn't look "special" but doesnt look bad either. Probably not the lens' strong suit. The flare on the second last doesn't look good but the last one actually enhances the image I think.

Thanks all.
I also think the last one flare actually enhances the image
One last pic that I like with this DA21. This is the purpose that I get this lens
