question

Would the DA 21mm be a good lens for my K-50? I need a wide angle lens, since I am starting to shoot some photos for my friends landscaping business.
Asked by: Don S.
Very nice lightweight lens if you accept it's limitations. It has an equivalent field of view of 31mm for a full frame sensor view. Prefer the Pentax 15mm with equivalent 22.5mm field of view for Landscapes. However with shooting photos for a Landscaping business it might work well since you can zoom out with your feet and still get the shot.
