The Samyang/Rokinon 16mm F2 is quite good, but I thought the 16-x zooms were more practical on the A58 because they were stabilized.

As far as 14mm, the Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC tends to be the cheapest option. You could also find the Minolta version of the 11-18mm F4.5-5.6.

Yes, and it's an absolutely fantastic lens. The best affordable* ulta-wide I've tried by a long way.

*Under £200 s/h

The cheaper Sigma is indeed a decent option for ultra-wide, but I find myself using mine a lot less since I got a Sony 16-50mm f2.8 SSM. 16mm is wide enough for most occasions, surprisingly so considering I had 18mm zooms before. It is also as good as most non-macro primes I've tried in it's range and a big improvement on the pretty decent 18-55mm.

Not sure about the 'stablised' comment though - all lenses are stablised by the Steadyshot on the A58 and neither of my 16-x zooms have built-in stablisation. Does Steadyshot not work with the Samyangs?
