I guess it depends a lot on what you want to photograph.

I agree with Dave - if landscape is what you're after, 21 and 24 mm are
both a bit limiting. If you don't want to take a zoom, then I'd be
looking at the 14 mm DA - I haven't used it but a few people on the list
love it - wish I could afford one :-(>
