NEX5-N sharp lens advice
May 9, 2013

Hi guys,

I do aerial video using quadcopters etc along with the Sony NEX5N. It's a great camera for what we do, as it's so light compared to other DSLR cameras.

My problem is with the 16mm lens looking far too soft. The 18-55 isn't much better, so I was wondering what prime lenses are out there that will give me as sharp image as possible, but keep the weight down?

It needs to be around 16-28mm, (lower the better) I'm open to what is available in different price ranges, and it would mainly be used for landscapes where I need a long distance to be in focus. Therefore I don't ned auto focus, am happy to use lens adaptors as I will just open up the focus to infinity.

Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing what you come up with
