I started going through my photos to see what I have been doing with this lens. It doesn't completely "control my mind" but it is getting there.

The North of Spain can be quite rainy, with Galicia usually recording the highest precipitation values in the Iberian Peninsula. The Basque Country may be not that rainy, but it would be no surprise if you would find some rainy days in May. Actually this month is well-known by sunny hours combined with sudden rains and mild temperatures that could even reach values over 20ēC, but hardly below 8ēC. As long as you leave the coast it gets colder at night. This is quite typical from spring days at this latitude. As in the Galician territory, the Basque Country is very well regarded because of its excellent gastronomical culture. You will also find great coastal landscapes and lovely small villages there.

Doing the same myself. Not the job quiting. But, of course, building out the can will take a year or so, and my contract is up Dec 31st 2017...so, let the chips fall where they may.

Yellow and gray.
Perhaps I'm wrong, but it seems that 21mm ltd performs better in low light.
15mm shines in bright light.

I have DA15, DA21, DA35 ltd, FA77, F135.

I have been to spain recently, Madrid, Toledo, Granada, Sevilla, Cordoba, Ronda and I used the DA15 the most. I agree that DA21 without context can get more jobs and is also easier to use, but really what lens to use depends both on your style and the type of subject you encounter.

DA15 is an UWA so the perspective are exagerated. Scenes do not look natural. What it provide through is you have the impression to be inside the scene and if you match that with careful composition you can get fantastic landscapes and architectural shots.

On the opposite, a tele does perspective compression, giving the impression the subject is far away. Depth almost disapear and this is used to benefit to hide/reduce features on people portraits.

A DA15 is usefull in spain and cities in general to capture big scene with high buildings and reproduce the sensation that you actually are in the city, surrounded by quite noticable monuments.

And there the DA15 specificities. The lens is extremely resistant to flare and very contrasty. It capture more dynamic range and while another lenses would give you burned highlights from lack of contrast control, DA15 will give you the true colors. On some scene you see the difference directly on the view finder. But the DA15 while quite sharp need to be stopped down for borders and field curvature can be anoying at time.

Anyway, this is a style some like it, some don't. If you buy a WA or UWA for the first time I would strongly advise to do 1 or 2 walk with it in a city before and maybe churches and so on to train a bit and accustom yourself to the different way to see the world they provide.

Here a few shots with DA15 from spain, I let you juge if you like the kind of picture it does or not or how you could have managed the shoot with a 35mm instead (hint: divide the picture size by 2 for both height and width and you get 30mm framing). By the way, you can click on the picture to get the full size version.

I too would recommend the DA21 over the DA15, for very much the same reasons as others gave. The DA21 is very reliable performer. With the DA15 you have to be more careful.

Another inexpensive option to consider, if you are after a WA, is the DA16-45 zoom. It is a fair bit bigger and heavier than either of the two limiteds though. It's been discontinued but there is still stock around.

I agree about the DA15 for Spain. If I was going to be visiting cathedrals and stuff like that I'd go with the 15 for sure. Maybe bring a mini tripod like a Ultrapod II for longer indoor exposures without worrying so much about bulk.
