Canon FDn 20mm f/2.8

Don't have one personally, but some nice examples on FM.

Hi everyone, I need your help

As the title says, I need a 20mm or less lens (for interior photography, so no fish-eye or lenses with a lot of weird distortions) for the A7.

It can be slow (I use flash), but it must be decently sharp (at least at F5.6-8). It can be a legacy MF lens (cheaper).

Any idea? I plan to use it until I get the 16-35 FE, therefore I don't want to invest too much.

I have adapters for Minolta (MC/MD/AF), Nikon, Hexanon, M42.

Thanks for any input you can give me!
