16mm or wider lens ?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,
I haven't been following camera gears for so long and I don't know what's available for the A7.
I'm trying to avoid the Sony brands right now because of cost, but I need something 16 or wider for some jobs I will be asked to do.
I will be shooting F8 or higher, so aperture don't matter to me so cheaper the better.

Notes:
-16mm or wider
-Aperture don't matter. I will be shooting F8.
-Any brand. Don't care as long as its cheap.

You've got a couple of dozen lenses to choose from -- down to 5mm -- zooms, fixed, fisheye & not. AF & not, large & small, fast & slow.  You need to think about what you want.  Lots of 14mm & 15mm to choose from (many are the same lens).  How about a Laowa 10-18mm zoom?

I just looked this up. Is this a manual cropped  sensor lens?  I'm use to seeing full frame as FE so I'm not too sure. It says this on amazon:

About this item

  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4.5 to f/22
  • One Extra-Low Dispersion Element
  • Two Aspherical Elements
  • Frog Eye Dust & Water-Repellent Coating

    Only thing not listed is the autofocus, is something I'm looking for as well.

Most Laowa lenses are manual focus, as is their 10-18 for Sony FE. They do have a 10mm f/2.8 with AF coming in June, but it's fairly expensive. A cheap option with autofocus is the Samyang/Rokinon AF 14mm f/2.8.
