Talking wide angle lens for sony a350



Firstly I would like to say hello to everyone in the forum. I have just bought the Sony A350. I received to lens with it, a 17m - 70m and a 70m - 200m zoom lens. I have since purchesed a fixed 500m lens and a fixed 50m lens. I feel I require a wide angle lens but I have been getting confused as to which one. Any advice would be grateful to which lens would be best and if people feel I would need any further lens. I am taking portraits, outside wild life and scenery and occasional sports events? Ta very much!!!!

Re: wide angle lens for sony a350

Welcome to Pixalo Mike

You have got a pretty good lens range there already, but if you really want an ultra wide angle, many people including myself would point you to the Sigma 10-20. I'm pretty sure that Tamron and Tokina also do similar lenses, but I'm not sure if there are any users here who would be able to give first hand impressions.

Tokina have recently announced that their 11-16 f2.8 will be available in the UK, and that is, I believe, the fastest third party wide angle lens that is available and must be worth checking out.
