Alternatives to KM 11-18 mm
Aug 17, 2014

I have the KonicaMinolta 11-18/4.5-5.6 and use it, primarily, for landscapes. I think it has too much CA, and problems with being sharp at the corners - but is there a better alternative?

I see Sigma 10-20 and Samyang 10/2.8 as the best alternatives, but are they any better when it comes to image quality?

It is to be used with A77 and I have no plans on going to FF. I have both Samyang 8mm and ZA 16-80 in my line up, so it's the gap between those two I would like to keep closed.

Any thought's, especially from those of you who have tried the different alternatives, are appreciated.
