Hello, 

I have the sony a6000 and I am really interested in landscape photography! I would like someone to recommend a good "wide angle lens" for me! Can someone give me some advice!?

Thanks you, much appreciated!!! :)

Another fine lens would be the Rokinon/Samyang 12mm/F2.0 NCS CS. It's affordable and provides a good wide angle of view. It's manual though. But that should be for no concern for landscape photography.

Advice ? For Landscape ? My advice is "Avoid the wide angle 

assumption". Have you done many landscapes with normal or 

"portrait" lenses ? Any landscape vista thaz at a distance will 

be imaged as a wide view, even when shot with a telephoto. 

  

Ultrawide perspective applied to landscapes typically imposes 

the "Camera Club Cliche" look. If you are a CC competitor you 

certainly need to execute the in-demand cliches to score well. 

But if you want to explore and expand your vision, relegate the 

ultrawides to what they are intended for: Interiors and cramped 

views of large architectural subjects. 

 

A fine shorter than normal lens for landscapes with the APSC 

format would be lenses like the 19mm Sigma or 20mm Sony. 

There's a whole heap of vintage 24mm SLR lenses that you 

can adapt, and these will barely nick your budget :-)  Also if you 

use a polarizer to help unveil your colors, you will get a uniform 

result all across the format with lenses in this FL range ... and 

budget-wise again, the polarizer will not be huge and pricey.  

  

You can even pick up cheaply an old polarizer that no one else 

would buy cuz it's not a Circular Polarizer. I've noticed that it's a

shamefully well-kept "secret" that you don't need a CP. [Those

are for certain SLR designs ... not even all SLRs].

The best lens for your purposes (and the A 6000) is the Sony E 4,0/10-15 mm OSS. In my opinionit is one of the best wide-angle zooms ever, regardless of the manufacturer! Especially in the WW area, it often comes from every focal length millimeter and there a zoom is of enormous advantage.

Alternatively, but more expensive, the Zeiss Touit 2.8/12 mm is recommended. It has no image stabilization (OSS), what ist not necessarily required at this focal range!

To the other alternatives (Samyang etc.) I can´t make any statements, but they have no autofokus.

Good luck!

If you want to go ultrawide, the Zeiss Touit 12mm is fantastic and can be picked up for a fraction of its price as new. For a WA I recommend the Sigma 19mm. Again, a fantastic lens for not too much money.
