How much is your budget?

I'm hoping to keep it under $200, but I would love to spend under $100. I'm not sure if this is practical, or wishful thinking.

Also, why not consider Sigma 19mm? And what is it that you don't like about the 16mm? Its 24mm equivalent FoV is rare for a prime lens.

I'll take a look at the Sigma, thanks! It's not that I don't like the 16mm. I guess I'm just hoping/wondering if there is something better than the 16mm that I should be considering. Something within my price rage. If I had a complaint about the 16mm, it would be the distortion - being a wide angle lens and all - it tends to push out the center. But I appreciate the low 2.8 on the 16mm vs the kit 3.5/18-55.

+1 on the Sigma 19. If distortion is a hot button issue for you and you happen to use LightRoom, besides being great a great landscape lens, one thing that the Sigma 19 has going for it (that most manual/legacy lenses do not) is a built-in lens profile in LR that corrects the small amount of distortion it does display.
