I have to admit the 15mm looks much prettier as well... the 12-24 is definitely an ugly lens. The all metal look and feel of the ltd primes can't be beat.

90% of my portfolio is studio work. I very, very rarely use anything wider than 35mm in that environment. My 12-24 is for landscape or architectural photography.

I can't imagine 15mm will be more flattering for portraiture even if the subjects care less about the size of the glass being put in front of them?

Not 700$ worth in my opinion, but I guess that'll be up to whoever buys it.

I can see why hauling a DA*50-135 would be annoying when hiking, but if you're already hauling a K5+grip (do people shoot without a grip? I can't fathom it) the 12-24 is hardly luggage.

I suppose K5 without grip + that 15mm would indeed be much smaller, but you ought to hike a lot to get a 700$ prime that only has one major advantage over the 12-24, which is its size.

Isn't the 12-24 a better investment for practically the same amount of money? This is all I could think of when I finished reading the review.
