comment:As e-mount lacks wide lenses I decided to but this one and use on my A7R
Even it needs LAEA4 to work AF it remains a quite compact and light set up which fits my needs
Distortion is a no-problem so far as adobe released a correct lens profile which correct it hassle-free
I recomemd this lens for any A7 shooters looking for a wide lens
