Re: Pentax DA 14mm opinions please

I've had a DA14 for more than 2 years now and use it quite a lot. Sharpness is OK in the corners, or good when stopped down a little (I've made some sharp prints in A3 size), CA is OK under normal conditions, distortion is low and vignetting almost non-existent. Here's some examples (not full size):

It's a lice lens, a little larger than my old A20mm 2.8 which gave about the same FOV on film, but better with respect to distortion and vignetting.
