    IN *love* with Pentax DA 21mm Limted pancake....

    Wow this lens is sharp sharp sharp... what a pleasant surprise. I think even sharper maybe than the DA70 or maybe the DA70 being a focal longer length wants a tripod and better focus.. either way, check the snaps....



    This one looks with some "spots" but ignore them, that's just a dirty windshield. So this is the whole image and then a 100% crop below:



    you can almost read the license plates to the pixel. Wow. And the color/tonality is great (again if something looks a tad washed out there, it's the windshield, not the lens):



    I must take some photographs when vacation hits on Friday!

    the 21 +35 or 21 +70 make a great walkaround kit.
    from the lenses I own so far (15,21,35,70,50-135)the 21 and 35 are the ones I have brought most often so far.

    The 21 + 43 Limiteds were virtually all I used the entire last year I was shooting with Pentax equipment. My favorites. :-)

    I have been eyeing the 21 as it's a FL I would use a lot, but I have hesitated due to the measured distortion in reviews. Does the distortion bother you?

    Did you see me mentioning any distortion at all? :-) That's how much it bothers me :-)
