Wide angle prime in 14 - 20mm range, highest IQ but size of Zeiss 18mm f3.5?
4 months ago

I want a high quality wide angle lens for travel with my D810.  My 14-24 would be just perfect for this if it were half its size and weight.

So, what are the alternatives?

The Nikon 14mm f2.8 is an old design and probably not as good as the Zeiss, which is currently my first choice.

How about the Samyang or Sigma 14?  I suspect the Zeiss will be much better across the frame at wider apertures.  Is it?

I don't think the Sigma 20mm would be as good.  Is it?

What are other choices here?
