Wide angle lens recommendations
2

This spring when the dogwoods bloom again along the Sac River I’m headed back to Caplinger Mills with a tripod and my 12-40 Pro and M5.2 to try out the high resolution shot.

It’s hard to find a lens too wide to use at Caplinger Mills, but I don’t want a fish eye. I want WwwiiideE and flat as possible. Faster is better, but not essential since it’s daylight when I shoot there. I might want to do wide angle night skies photos too, though.

Autofocus is nice, but landscapes are deliberate. It’s not a deal breaker.

An Olympus 9-18 is only about $250 used.

The Robikon 7.5 f2.8 is only about $150 used and some similar looking manual focus lenses only about $100. But I don’t want a fish eye, and I’m post production challenged.:)

Any recommendations for an ultra wide lens?

Any help is always appreciated and sorely needed.
