Excerpt: I wasn't sure that I needed this lens as I already own the DA12-24 however once I put it on the camera I realized how much different it handled than the 12-24. It is small, light and easy to carry. I have taken some of my best images with this lens. I find it excellent for street shooting and general use in a closed setting. It's also great for architecture.
Excerpt: My first APS-C lens, wide lens and DA *limited. Bought for landscape in low light (since I have Tamron 17-50mm/F2.8 that is very good at F5.6 and smaller). I was striked by the color and flare resistant it has, but little bit surprised by distortion. May be, I'm not used to such wide lens. I take this lens and FA-43mm/F1.9 for our last trip. Very amazing image.
Pros: all metal, flare resistant, beautifull color
Excerpt: The da 15mm ltd is an excellent addition to anyone's kit. It provided me with a wealth of shots that are viable for selling commercially. Due to its compact size it worked extremely well with the Sirui travel tripods as its weight did not counterbalance or overload the tripod head. This lens was also good f or taking out and about due to its robust nature. The screw on lens cap is solid.
Excerpt: The DA 15 limited is a very special lens. It definitely is an aberration in a time where people seem to want their primes to be large, sharp wide open, and really fast. Here is a lens that is small, has a maximum aperture of f4 and should be shot at f5.6 to get good sharpness. That said, it is one of the lenses I would want to take with me, if I were shipwrecked on a small Caribbean island.
Excerpt: Not much I can say that hasn't been said already. This is a great wide angle lens, compact and exceptionally well built. This was the first of the limiteds that I bought and it did not take long before I made it my goal to get them all. This along with the 21 mm limited fulfill all I could want for wide angle photography. Also this lens takes beautiful close ups as well.
Pros: compact size, build quality, sharpness, autofocus speed, good for close ups, built in hood
