Re: A mount wide prime suggestions

As mentioned the Sony 16-50 is an excellent lens. For ultrawide I love my Sigma 8-16.

My Sigma 8-16 is my favorite lens and my 16-50 is my second favorite and, by far, most used lens. Especially at 8mm the Sigma does fatten the frame a bit but it is still rectilinear. It is fine as long as you don't use it to take a picture of your wife. If I have these 2 lenses with me I feel I have a complete kit... sometimes I will toss in my Sony 55-300 but it doesnt see near as much use as the other two.

I loved my Minolta 20mm when I shot film but it doesn't really offer much on aps frame that the 16-50 can't do as well or better.  When I get a full frame camera some day the 20mm will come out of retirement!
