  • Excerpt: One thing that has never been mentioned (or I have not seen written) is that the images rendered by this lens is obviously "digital", for lack of a better adjective. Nothing wrong with being "digital" but it lacks the FA Limited's charm. Still, it's a lens worth having.
  • Pros: Tiny, Unique colors

  • Excerpt: Brilliant gem from Pentax. Small, high quality, great build and overall great image quality. It is well larger than the 40 or 21 Limited, more in the order of size of the 40 limited. However, for a 15mm, that is really small. Compared for instance to the 10-20 Sigma (3.5) it is amazingly small.
  • Pros: Size, colotr rendering, angle
  • Cons: Aperture?

  • Excerpt: I needed a wide angle lens for my trip across the country and this was the one I got. I stuck with a prime because I was desiring image quality over zoom flexibility. And choosing this over the 12-24 was good since I got image quality at a less expensive rate.
  • Pros: wide, beautiful build, great color and contrast, crisp & sharp
  • Cons: slow

  • 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.
  • Pros: sharp & compact
  • Cons: wish it were a bit faster

  • Excerpt: It's better, IMO, than the HD 15mm. The sunbursts are beautiful, the bokeh is great for a 15mm. No flare, which is a big concern (for me at least) at this aperture.
  • Pros: Vibrant images, joy of use, small, light, no flare.
  • Cons: No WR, corner sharpness wide open, small aperture

  • 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
  • Cons: barel distortion, expensive
