Wide Primes (->19mm)

Lenses for mFT-cameras...

Wide primes


Corrected for more natural view than fisheyes, these are the "normal" landscape and architectural lenses. The longer the focal lenght, the more "main stream" you go here. Some years ago a 28mm (in FF-terms), here a 14mm lens, was thought as a super-wide... No more.

There are fast and even faster options, up to F0.95. Manual focusing with wide angle lenses is not difficult, and with enlarged views and focus aids it's even easier.

But there are AF-versions too. Even faster to handle and focus, compact... Plenty of choices.

What I like with these modern lens technologies is that the close focus possibilities are better and better.
