Low-light, wide-angle lenses for A7iii

Recommended Posts

Want to film some golden hour / low light slow motion scenes  at dusk and after a nice quick wide that would work well (without breaking the bank!).

I've been using the Tamron 28-75mm which seems good, but looking at maybe getting a faster aperture lense.

 

Any good recommendations?

 

Thanks!

How are those good wide-angle lenses?

In anyone's book the 35mm 1.8 is certainly a wideangle lens, ultrawide was not specified, the others are just for information. The 24mm GM was mentioned by another poster but the OP specified that it should not break the bank, so I was offering an alternative. The 28mm f2 is also worth considering but in Sony land there isn't a cheap, fast ultra wideangle yet. There is also the 20mm f2 Tokina if the AF noise isn't a bother and the IQ acceptable. The trouble is that cheap, fast and wideangle are rare companions.

The Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC/DN comes to mind if you don't mind shooting in super35-mode and you only intend to use it for video. Can be had new for about €400. Roughly equivalent to a 24mm f/2 on Fullframe.
