The DA-L lens is optically better than my old DA 18-55, don't know how it stacks up with the DA II though. The plastic lens mount is no big deal and the lens seems well constructed and very light. Shame about the lack of a hood though.
The DA-L is optically identical to the DA II. The differences are just in the build. The lack of quick shift would be a bigger deal to me than the plastic mount.

It isn't a big deal for me since it is the lens I put on the camera when I am going about my daily business, walking around the city in good light etc. But I can see how it would be a deal breaker for some folks.

Congrats on a nice camera - I use the 21, 35 and 70mm on mine, with pleasing results.

It is really fun to use, isn't it
