Help with landscape lens choice
Nov 17, 2012

I’m looking for a landscape lens for my k30 which is sharp at the edges, but I’m not having much luck. I don’t have the money for a lens like the 31mm ltd and I’d prefer something a little wider anyway. There doesn’t seem to be that many wide lenses for K mount, including Sigma and Tamron lenses. I have read favourable posts about wide zooms but when I look at test images I’m left with the feeling that my expectations may be somewhat higher than others.

I have the 30mm Samsung NX prime which only cost £200 which sort of sets the standard I’m after. Photozone.de has a photo of a train at f8 which is a good demonstration.

If you have a suggestion, could you point to full size and unedited landscape test shots which prove the point? Thanks Ian
