Re: wide angle lens

What about the Samyang (Rokinon, Walimex, etc) 2.8/14? It got nice reviews and it's quite cheap. Ok, It's not a zoom - but the kit lens' 18mm is fine for not-too-wide shots.

At that price, meeting your requirements, I would select (in my personal order of preference) the Voigtlander 20mm f/3.5, the Nikon 20mm f/2.8D, or the Nikon 24mm f/2.8D. Voigtlander is very small, I like the IQ the best, but is MF. The 20/2.8 and 24/2.8 are both small, very nice, I prefer the 20 (I spent 3 weeks in Italy with just the 20 and the 50mm f/1.4G with no regrets).

BTW, I shoot FX, so that's the basis of these ideas.
