Re: 20mm f/2.8 options

Bad luck with your 20mm. I can't make any comparisons, but I do use the 21mm DA Ltd as my main walk around lens and have been very happy with the results. I would say the results are consistent with the other Ltd primes.

It might be worth noting that max aperture is f3.2 rather than the f2.8 you are looking for. I looked through my library, but I haven't used the lens much wide open - plenty of nice results at f4 and f5.6 though.

Also, on the plus side it is a small light lens, built in (removable) lens hood.

If interested, I have a gallery of all 21mm DA Ltd shots at http://www.rbpics.com/p564129749
