This is due to digikam 2.x requires (or wishes) functions bundled in KDE
4.7 which will not be shipped with F15.

Use KDE testing repo. There you will get KDE 4.7 and Digikam 2.x. This
versions are not offically supported but there is a very active KDE
fedora mailing list where you get help if needed.

I myself use fedora since a few years and am very pleased with it. But
for me digikam 1.9 is enough.
