A new premier lens for walking about - 14-20mm f/2
8 months ago

After reading a few threads about walkabout lens choices, I thought a lens like this should be just about perfect for leaving on the camera all the time - fast AF, fast max aperture, reasonably small size and weight, excellent IQ, and also a zoom range that covers a little bit more than just what a classic 35mm equiv. prime lens has. It's a big ask, that's why I choose a very narrow zoom range, just enough for the type of shooting that one does probably 99% of the time while walking about, and I am ready to pay for quality.

A lens like this should provide a solution to those who find the 12-35 or 12-35mm too big for this purpose, the current pancake or compact zooms too slow, and the existing small primes too limiting in their FL and/or quality. (The 12-35mm and 12-35mm are already better in IQ than most of those wide angle primes.)
