Re: Wide angle lens recommendation for Sony A7 for travel

You will need an adapter if you want a quality lens. The great thing about the A7 is the adaptability to virtually every lens ever made.

Since I already have Nikon lenses, of course I have the Novaflex adapter (there are others). It adds a tiny amount of weight length, but works great.

Sadly, there are no FE mounts in wide angle atm, and that 16-35 zoom is a few months away. You may consider what I am doing - using the adapter with the excellent (and tiny!) Nikon 20mm f3.5 AIS. You can find them used for about ~$350. The great thing about these is they hold their value, so if you decide to get the Sony zoom later you can sell the older lens and not take much or any loss.
