Thank you MirekE.

If you want something that is significantly better than your zoom, you will probably have to give up your cost requirement. There are excellent WA lenses around, perhaps you could get one expensive lens instead of two cheap.  It is hard to recommend a specific lens, because there is a big difference between 35, 24 or 14mm. Not very expensive and really good is the Sigma 35/1.4. Zeiss makes excellent, albeit manual focusing wides as well and I suppose you know about the expensive Canons.

Please tell me more about your experience with Sigma 35mm f1.4.

By the way no lens is perfect and it might be a good idea to make a list of priorities. For example, do you need corner sharpness?


Do you need high speed?


Is size a concern?

Not too much.

Do you need flare resistance?

Not necessarily.

Autofocus? Etc.

Either or is fine.
