Long ago I owned the 14mm. Loved that lens. I also owned the Sigma 12-24. Also a fun lens.

Aside from the Sony 12-24, what full frame wide choices are there that are AF?

And if not made by Sony, work native with all the features the A7R3 has to offer?

Thank you.

samyang 14mm F2.8 AF

however, if you can live without the 2.8, the 12-24 is really neat. Small for what it is, very high level optics. Sharper than some primes that share the range, and I wouldnt be surprised if sharper than the samyang. Unlike samyang, it also takes 77mm filters via filter hack (no mods to the lens, only tape added to filter).

There are quite a few wide angle options if you're OK with manual focus. For auto-focus you're a bit more limited. I've focused on lenses that go wider than 20mm:

Auto-focus in E-mount:
Sony 12-24mm f/4 G
Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 GM
Sony 16-35mm f/4 ZA
Samyang 14mm f/2.8
Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8

With an EF adapter you can use any Canon-EF mount wide angle lens also:
Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L
Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L
Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS
Canon 14mm f/2.8L
Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art
Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II
Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD


If you're willing to manually focus:
Sony E-mount:
Samyang 14mm f/2.8
Voigtlander Heliar-Hyper Wide 10mm f/5.6
Voigtlander Ultra Wide-Heliar 12mm f/5.6
Voigtlander Super Wide-Heliar 15mm f/4.5
Venus Optics Laowa 12mm f/2.8
Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/2

Canon EF-mount:
Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L
IRIX 11mm f/4
IRIX 15mm f/2.4
Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/4 Macro
Zeiss Distagon T* 15mm f/2.8 ZE
Zeiss Milvus 15mm f/2.8 ZE
Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8 ZE

Thank you very much for that awesome list.

What, if anything, do you lose, or gain perhaps, by using an adaptor and Canon lens?

Adaptors can have tolerance issues causing decentering issues. They can also leak light or cause internal reflections. I always self flock the insides of adaptors (metabones has a flocked version) which helps mitigate the reflection issue. I personally feel you are always better with native if you can but many people happily use adapted glass.

With regards to wide lenses I highly recommend the Voigtlander 15 Sony version. By all accounts the 10 and 12 are also great

Yes, in general native lenses are a better bet; no issues with the adapter tolerances and generally better autofocus performance. The good autofocus adapters (Metabones and Sigma) are also expensive; that money could be put towards a lens instead.

The main advantage to an adapter is it opens up more lens possibilities. The two big reasons to do this are if you already have lenses in another mount (like you have a full set of Canon EF lenses and want to try out a Sony camera before committing to buying native lenses) or the lenses you want aren't available in the Sony E Mount (like a Canon 17mm TS-E for example). If you're buying a new lens I would probably stick to E-mount. As Sony adds more E-mount lenses to the family the second reason is becoming less and less of an issue.


BTW I recently switched from an A7 to an A6500; if I was still using full-frame I'd have bought that Sony 12-24mm already. From the reviews I've seen it's a very good lens at a reasonable price. My favorite lens on my A7 was a Canon 16-35 f/4L on an adapter; I like wide angle :)

the 12-24 is cute and cuddly, and it's sharp too. Sunstars are poor, flare can sometimes be a problem, but if you can live with that, what a fantastic lens. If I were stuck shooting landscapes and only had that lens, I wouldnt even complain, wonderful lens.

I may have missed it, but no one seemed to have mentioned Samyang/Rokinon 14mm AF for Sony FE mount. It is relatively new, has autofocus, and is designed for the A7 lineup. I own one and am pretty happy with it.

you can get the 14mm ART but that going to be very very big. I would go with the 12-24G. I have this lens. Very good. Small and very light too.
