Can you explain? It is a slow, full frame lens and the focal length is here nor there. Why not the Sony 11/1.8 for your wide angle needs? I like mine.

Thanks, and now I see, I was wrong, I was talking about the Sigma 16mm for E mount, not FE 17mm. I did not check the 11mm lens yet. I have to say I am not a real wide angle shooter, if my kit starts at 24mm or 28mm (in FF dimensions), I think I am good.

Ah, the 16/1.4 is highly regarded and you would be happy most likely. The focal length is not for me (I much prefer a 28mm eq) and it is a bit heavy. But the results are good. Nicely compliments your 56mm

A lense with a large diaphragma: f2,8 and larger (smaller number).
The most general answer, I guess.

And focal length? Depends on what to shoot...

My modest 2cents.

That very much depends on what you are shooting - still or moving scenes, for example - or street photography vs. architecture at night. There are lots of possibilities.

I am rather inclined to shoot quiet, empty, liveless scenes at night (well, everyone is sleeping ...) and I am using a tripod for low ISO, low noise but rather long exposures. I try to shun artificial lighting and I am not a fan of "sunstars" that come with it if you stop down to enhance depth of field. I'd rather use WA primes or zooms that are (relatively) sharp into the corners wide open. But there are always compromises (and there is Photoshop for PP). Zooms generally might be helpful for composition - with a tripod and the option to use long exposures almost any lens will work.
