Re: Decent manual focus landscape lens?

50mm will be too narrow for most landscape applications. In fact, 35mm would be limiting usually. And there are plenty of very good 24mm options. How much is your budget?

I had a Soligor 24mm f/2.8 (made by Tokina) on Minolta MD mount that was excellent but heavy (full metal and a huge front element) and had it delivered for $40.

Also, why not consider Sigma 19mm? And what is it that you don't like about the 16mm? Its 24mm equivalent FoV is rare for a prime lens.
