What !!!!???  how could you do that?

For DA primes 21 / 40 / 70  and then 15  is about right.    There is a decent difference  15 - 21.

i recently bought a used  21 and found this FOV very useful, why did i wait?

I had 15 - 35 - 43  - 70 for a while .  i wanted ultrawide , macro and low light in a compact package.  But the  15 seem "to far" from 35

15 - 35 - 77  is perhaps better (i dont have the 77)  but there still the 15-35 gap.

Same thing with 15 - 43 - 100  which i also carry around for  ultrawide,  low light , macro.  The spacing 15 - 43 is even more.

DA21  slots in there very nicely.  Highly underrated.
