Re: Uncompromised Landscape Lens for A7R?

Since we have bought, or will buy the A7R because it is light, full frame and has a great sensor, is there a landscape lens(24mm or less) that doesn't undermine those essential attributes?

That eliminates hefty SLR lenses on adaptors, legacy lenses that require cropping and/or software solutions for colour issues and vignetting, and mediocre optics that compromise the IQ and resolution potential of the A7R sensor.

Any first hand experience with an excellent lightweight landscape lens that brings the best out of this camera?

Are you trolling? Serious question. What you are asking for doesn't exist. 'no compromise', 'not adapted' etc. You KNOW the 5 lenses that have been announced. IF you came here asking 'whats a good landscape lens until the Zeiss wide angle arrives next year' I would be inclined to help, but you are clearly just making a fuss over nothing.

For what it's worth to anyone coming here to get some actual advice for a small, decent UWA to go with their new A7 or A7R, I would suggest the Minolta or Sony 20mm f2.8. If you need wider and can deal with the bulk and want something very cheap to tide you over, the Samyang/Rokinon 14mm T3.1 should fit the bill and is available in E-Mount.
