comment:If you are looking for a good wide-angle lens for E mount, Sony FE 1.4/24 GM is currently probably the best option available. Apart from the high price, it is hard to find any flaws. Of course, the fixed focal length of 24 mm does not suit for every situation, but when it is suitable, it works very well.
