Quality is the same (I think it was stated before). From reading the recent previous posts, the DA version in my opinion. Unless funds are an issue. Don't forget to buy a hood anyway if you get the DAL.

Great--will I need to buy a UV filter for this, too?

I no longer use a UV filter on any lens, and I believe that's the majority opinion around here. Digital sensors are not affected by UV the way film is. A filter can protect the lens from abrasion etc, but it also can have a negative impact on image quality. Most members just use a hood for mechanical protection and of course as a sun shade, no UV filter.

I'm showing my ignorance. Thanks for clarifying things!
