I have 24 mm f2 Zeiss (which i love), but I'm thinking about picking up either a 20 mm or perhaps even 16mm prime for landscape and architecture photography, as 24 is just not wide enough, but I don't want a zoom, just because of the weight (although the Tamron 15-30 is tempting). I know Samyang make some highly regarded manual focus primes, and I'm not adverse to manual focus for this kind of application (as focus peaking makes this easy task).

Anybody have any hands-on experience with this one– And tried several of these with a clear favorite recommendation?

Thanks in advance
