Thread: Wide Angle Prime for Full Frame

  1. #1

    Default Wide Angle Prime for Full Frame

    HI!
    I did a search, but couldn't find what I was looking for, basically a list of wide angle primes (less than or equal to 24mm) I can check out.

    I chose primes because it's smaller for travel.

    I want to use it on a full frame camera, so I don't want a APS-C lens.

    Autofocus is not essential, I don't mind using an old lens with adaptor, manual focus with stop-down metering. (ie. mount doesn't matter, so long as I can get an adaptor)

    I want something with good image quality.

    Say.... a budget of $400, what's available?

    Thanks!

    Camera brand is Canon, but I don't mind Nikon or Olympus lens etc.
    Any suggestions?

    Hi

    here is a link by Bjorn Rorslett on wide angle primes including the old manual ones
    http://www.naturfotograf.com/lens_wide.html

    Doesn include the price.
    For AF a 24mm prime might be ard the price. A 20mm prime will cost more, and a used lens might still be slightly more than your budget.
