    The L in DAL stands for 'Lightweight'. It is lighter in weight. It also has a plastic mount and does not have the Quick Shift clutch mechanism.

    The DA has a metal mount and also has the Quick Shift feature.

    Both DAL and DA lenses are very similar optically... so you'd be hard-pressed to notice any difference.

    Then you also have the WR range of lenses which indicate that they have inner seals for making them 'Weather Resistant'.

    Singapore prices are very good. Only reason to buy from Japan is because you want the colours that are only available in Japan.

    The coloured lens are the 18-55 kit only.

    In addition to sircam's explanation, the DA comes with Pentax hood, DAL doesn't.
