Voigtlander 15mm or Canon FD 17mm for Nex 6 wide angle
Mar 22, 2013

Hi all,

I currently have the following and am looking to add a WA lens to my gear. SELP1650, SEL35F18, Samyang 8mm Fisheye, Canon FD 24mm f2.8 and the Canon FD 50mm f1.4.

Understandably the kit lens has got most of the range I'm interested in covered but I find myself being that much more impressed by the SEL35F18as image quality so I've been looking out for sharper lenses (prime).

The sample pictures taken by a Voigtlander 15mm on a Nex 7 seem pretty impressive. That seems like a really attractive option given that I do not want to pay $1k for the 10-18 or the Zeiss 24mm. Can you share your take on your choice of a good wide angle legacy lens for the Nex 6 please?

Cheers.
