A7R Ultra wide angle options (no fisheye)
Mar 1, 2014


maybe this has been asked already many times, but I cannot find anything via search.

I was thinking about ultra wide angle (non fisheye) options for the A7R while we wait for the rumoured FE 16-35.

Preferably in A mount I would say, since I have the LA-AE4. Preferably under 20mm, as I have the 24-70.

So far I got:

  • CZ 16-35 f2.8 ZA. Big and expensive.
  • Sigma 12-24: any experience with this?
  • Minolta 17-35 D or G. Pretty cheap, any comments on this?
  • Samyang 14mm f2.8. Pretty cheap, not a stellar performer, but hey! We're not here complain are we?
  • NEX's own 10-18 used from 14 up to avoid vignetting.

Any other options from Tamron or Tokina for instance?

Am I missing anything? Do you have any advice?

Since, if the FE 16-35 will become reality and will have a performance at least on par with the 24-70 I plan to get it, I would not be eager to spend a lot (as with the ZA 16-35 for instance). The Minolta/Samyang price ranges would be ideal, and the advantage of the samyang would be that I can keep it even after getting a 16-35 in case I need those extra 2mm (unlikely, but still...)
