It's only rangefinder wide angles that don't work well on most digital sensors including the A series (especially symmetical designs)

These Canon zooms will work as well (modulo slower autofocus) as they do on Canon.

However neither is blazingly sharp, if that's what floats your boat: especially in the corners (I only really mention this because the FEzoom has disappointed you)

It floats mine too, a bit. If you don't want to wait and see if the Zeiss wide zoom will be more like their primes and less like their normal zoom (which was constrained I think by the size and weight brief) then I'd go the distagon 21 or 252.5 FE for landscape (assuming the Canon TSEs are too pricey and to large)
