comment:Sharpest wide open lens I've ever seen! And the widest usable range of f-stops on any lens I own. Excellent AF performance that works well with the a6300 AF features.

I added a pricier B+W UV filter to preserve its sharpness. It is paired with its 19/2.8 DN Art sibling as part of my hiking kit.

This one is a no-brainer - all the current review rave about this Art model. If you need an excellent superwide, this does 95% of what any better lens can do.
