How does the DA 21mm compare? I find it gives similar results; sharp, contrasty and colorful images. If shot with the right angle, you can elicit reasonable DOF out of it as well.
thanks Jeff,
I'm still out on this one. My wife always persuades me I should just start using my 10-20 at 20 (which I never do, for me it's basicaly 10mm f4 prime) but I find myself drawn to the 21ltd.
you and eaglerapids are two main reasons.

My DA15 (along with my FA77) just arrived and I left the office a bit early to try them out. Here a couple of shots with the DA15:

Love this lens!

At last, someone posting images from the DA15. That looks rather decent, I like the rendering very much, can't wait for mine to show up ;-). Tx for taking the time to post these images.

DA 40mm; probably should have tried stopping down even more but ran out of time to experiment.

I have the 35 and 15. Both are small and very handy although maybe not as small as the other DA's. I find the 35 to be one of the sharpest lenses I have and I enjoy using it very much.

Magnificent lens, but the oof/bokeh is a little bit yucky. I should take more macro shots...

Well, my DA70 should arrive tomorrow to complete the original DA Ltd trio of 21, 40, 70. Of course I blame/thank this thread in equal measure and hope to contribute sometime soon. Now will people please stop posting shots from the 15 and 35!
