another 21 on K3 for urban landscape. I should have used a faster shutter speed.

Why faster? You want to freeze that train?
I love your photos, and some motion in them is not bad

Thank you, and Yes, the train is blurred. I am so used to with slowly config my setting on tripod. when it comes to moving object, my setting is allover the places.

I disagree, unlike a landscape, a little blur an otherwise static cityscape gives the picture a sense of the dynamic motion in the city.

21mm is wide. 15mm is wiiiideeee. 15mm is almost awkwardly wide. 21mm is very sensible, but still wide.
Get the 15mm if you want extreme perspective. Get the 21mm if you want a lens that is great, but can be very multi-purpose.
That said, I don't think the DA 21mm is perfect choice for astrophoto, because it has some coma and a slow aperture. I don't have DA 15mm, I have Samyang 14mm that I can use for astrophoto. Combo of DA 21mm and Samyang 14mm is pretty nice. And yes, there is noticeable difference in FoV

Yes I was.looking at the Samy 14, but I keep seeing where it is hit or miss. It is sharp from what information I have gathered.

If I compare the Samyang 14mm vs DA 21mm.. The Samyang is very sharp. Much wider. Faster aperture. Can't use crop-hood or filters, miscalibated distance scales and potential decentering problems. Very affordable.
DA 21 much smaller, lighter. Everything works, works well. Good barrel, Quickshift, hood. Maybe not as super sharp accross the frame at all apertures, but still very sharp. Amazing colours and contrasts! Stunning.
BUT! You have K-1, so DA 15mm and DA 21mm won't cover the full frame. Samyang 14mm does (As do Samyang 24mm and 20mm)

Thanks. I asked the same question a year or so ago and decided to buy both, try them out and sell the one that I used the least. I ended up keeping both.
