What options are there for the A7R in the 24mm range that isnt affected by vignetting?

Here's a few ideas:


  • Sony Zeiss 24mm f/2 (I reckon this is one of the the best options if size/cost are not issues)
  • Minolta 24mm f/2.8
  • Sigma Super Wide II 24mm f/2.8 (cheap and looks quite decent)
  • A good copy of the Zeiss 24-70mm


  • Samyang 24mm f/1.4
  • Olympus OM 24mm f/2 or f/2.8 (quite small)
  • Nikon AIS 24mm f/2.8

Edit: and the Canon 24mm IS mentioned above is also an excellent idea, better than most if not all of mine

A rose by any other name is still a chicken.

I wondered too about the zeiss 24 with Sony adapter. The canon combo is much cheaper, and has incredibly useful IS but the zeiss has fast AF! I wish I had one to test out...

Meanwhile...if money is no object...the 24mm ts-e would be my pick!

Why would you need an adapter?
