Zeiss 24/2
In reply to Ed at Ridersite, Mar 8, 2013

I have the CZ 24/2, and I can't say enough good things about it (except i wish is was not so expensive). I use it on my crop sensor a77-- but I can't wait to get the a99 (or a101 or whatever the 50Mp square sensor successor will be called).

Sigma has some inexpensive wide f/1.8 lenses, I don't own one but I have read mixed reviews on them. If "fast" allows for f/2.8, the Tokina 11-16 F2.8 is supposed to be pretty good (another lens I do not own). For crop sensors, the Sony 16-50/2.8 is pretty wide, a good build, and fast AF.
