Re: When is the ultra-wide DA* 11-18 f/2.8 needed

ULTRA-wide lens is Sigma 8-16

11mm is closer to what DA12-24/4 was capable of and the difference is huge. Ricoh should create some 8-16/4 or similar.. that will be nice. Fuji has expensive 8-16/2.8, but do we really need F2.8 for such wide field of view?

Btw just for comparison with another wide thing.. Oly 9mm F8 FishEye
