Re: Ultrawide angle lenses for FE?

Laowa does make a 12/2.8 if you wanna go significantly wider without sacrificing speed. I'm happy with my Tamron 17-28 but I've been eyeing the Laowa 15/2 anyway just to have something a bit wider and smaller (tho it's actually heavier due to the beefy metal build). There's also rumors of a Sony 16/1.8 GM being announced next year, tho it'll likely be over $1K USD.

There's plenty of slower/smaller/wider UWAs from Laowa and Voigtlanders too but I dunno how much sharper those would be into the edges vs the Samyang 14/2.8, they've got stuff at around 9mm thru 12mm which would be noticeably wider either way. I'd expect the 15/2 to be the sharpest of the bunch when stopped down... For coma performance you might wanna look up some reviews.
