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
Excerpt: I also have DA21 and DA40 but they cannot reach a 'Wow' sharpness and colors that DA15 has. A50 F1.4 can catch up the sharpness but the flare resistance is far away from DA15. I can be quite free to take photos with DA15 even if with he bright sun included.
Excerpt: The color rendition is super, rich, vivid and fascinating in all the shot that I took with it. I am not going to talk about bokeh because as being a wide angle lens I believe we cannot everything.
Excerpt: I use this lens far more often than I ever thought I would use a 15mm. Images are beautifully rendered even wide open. Great for portraits in tight spaces if you are careful -- the distortion control is very, very good. I find the size to be just perfect on a DSLR. It handles amazingly well.
Excerpt: I have had this lens for almost 2 years and is a companion to the 40 and 70 for walk around. It performs best at F8 and is a joy to use. It is a quality piece and the pictures it produces are stunning. I use this a lot for waterfalls and landscapes. It got a lot of use a couple weeks ago in the Mayan Riviera. The ruins were detailed and the colors are typical Pentax.
