Looking for a wide angle manual focus older lens, Gasrocks, i've noticed you have plenty of old manual focus lenses. Any recommendations?

Looking for something that gets wide open between 10-15mm. I would love to get canons 10-20mm UWA but, alas i dont have anywhere nears those types of funds.

The only lenses ever made wider than 17mm in the film days were 8mm, 12mm, 15mm, 16mm and 17mm fisheyes.

10-16mm lenses were made for APS-C sensors specifically. So there isn't really a MF choice in the UWA realm for what you want.

You should consider the Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 or new Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 (if you're willing to spend a little more), or Tokina 12-24mm f/4 Mk1 ($399).

I don't remember any manual focus Ultra Wide Angle lenses from the "good old days". Were there any?

Thanks i figured that much, it was worth a shot asking though i wasn't sure.

i will look into the Tokina and keep an eye out for a decent price. Thanks for your time.

Although 17mm was as wide as reasonably-priced rectilinear ultrawides went for 35mm format, several manufacturers (Nikon, Pentax, and Contax I know of) made 15mm lenses, and Nikon did a 13mm f/5.6, though that was both rare and expensive, and also very big, as in those days they didn't have aspherical elements or high-refraction glass.


Mark.

One I loved is my Nikkor AI-S 20mm F/3.5.. There was also a 15mm Nikkor..
