I'd be glad to make a workout programme for carrying lenses and takind heavy bag of and on to your back, if they make this lens
Let me guess...that workout program will involve bench-pressing that very lens, will it?

I'd also need a bigger bag....and, likely a physician's appointment for my back...

Would be a really cool lens, though. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
Or you can pick up a Pentax MX and an FA 35... there's your 24mm/1.4! Lighter than K-5 with DA 40 attached. Too bad the noise is usually very harsh from around iso 800.

Next up you will be suggesting canvas and brush, I'm sure.....?
Scratch that, next up from what you suggest would be chisel and cave wall....

You'll need to knock out a wall and taken out a 2nd mortgage to get that Hasselblad scanner to do it all justice.

I'm suggesting that a used 5D + 35mm/2 is lighter than a hypothetical 24mm/1.4 APS C lens... FA 24mm/2 and Sigma 24mm/1.8 is plenty big already. If you really need that range, that's the better option, and you can even get it today

Well it is not just that simple. First thing would naturally be that I have one lens for my self to make this work out plan. Then I'll make careful plans of usage with that kens and plan exact movements wich done as I have researched, will prevent most of accidents and stretching a muscle during a shoot.

It would take aproximatelly 6 month until I'm finished with flagship camera and lens combination research.

In other words, yes bench-pressing.

IF that is done under exactly the same circumstances (read exact same focus point), then I would say the improvement is significant.

Those Flickr shots taken with the HD DA21 show a definite lack of pixie dust compared to my old plain DA21

Of course it is; after all the HD coating is playing - quality wise - on the nano-coatings league.

I see from your sig that you use a K-7? The sensor being the K-5 sensor plays a role here too imho.

I agree that the shots with the 21 seem extremely pedestrian though.

All the DA 70 shots look very very good.

Here is a Google translated review of the HD 15mm from DC Watch in Japan. I haven't had time to read it fully, but it seems like the detail in low-light is improved and there is some weakening of the starburst effect, so that some may still prefer the older one. No side-by-side comparisons in this review, but a few sample images.

It doesn't help that whoever was behind the camera clearly doesn't know what he or she is doing.
