The Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G is expensive, but also excellent, which is till the end of time a dilemma.

5. Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED 


It's big, it's somewhat heavy, it's expensive but the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED is also excellent in every respect. Handling is beautiful, construction quality unsoiled and the optical performance universally excellent. There is no doubt that Nikon has presented us with a very desirable optic, albeit it at a price. Although the drift over the years has been for tastes to alter, favouring wider and wider lenses as they began to fall into affordable price supports, 28mm remains a very useful length. Given the bright maximum aperture of this lens and its fairly wide field of view, in use, it in actuality proves to be very useful for a wide variety of applications.

The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E is a high performance, ultra-bright wide angle lens that wields beautifully.

As always, there leave be a price to pay for excellence. None of the 24/25mm f/1.4 bright lenses are cheap, but they do represent the cost of high-quality optics. The Milvus 25mm f/1.4 portrays a variation, sacrificing the AF and pulling no punches in weight or bulk, just delivering solid engineering and optical quality.

7. Samyang AF 35mm f/2.8 FE 


Some lenses are a natural pleasure to use, and the Samyang AF 35mm f/2.8 FE falls into this category. The technical quality is excellent, the AF is fast and accurate and the results look punchy with splendid colour rendition.

In terms of value, it's hard to argue with such a modestly priced lens when it performs so well. Poorly resistance would be nice, as would full-time manual focus in AF mode, but apart from that the lens pretty much hits the hickeys. It is certainly an excellent match for the Sony mirrorless range for which it has been designed.

8. Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM 


The Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM is a wide-angle lens that come forwards superb and consistent performance. Sharpness is excellent throughout as too is CA correction and no flare was present in any of the shots we captured with the lens when we put it to the test. Inventing can not be faulted and the weather-sealing also ticks another 'plus' box. There's no  IS, but that may be more acceptable in to the utmost angle lenses and another negative is the price as it's not something everyone will be able to stretch to. Having said that, if your budget can explain the large margin between it and the alternatives, it's well-worth considering.

9. Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens 


The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM is a wide-angle lens for full-frame cameras that make a laughing-stock ofs a zoom range of just over 2x and a constant maximum aperture optics, an aperture is a hole or an opening through which light travels of f/4. Sharpness is excellent, autofocus speeds are very fast and even with its smashing build quality, thanks in part to the constant f/4 maximum aperture, this lens only weighs 615g. The 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM lens has a four-stop image stabiliser and sudden images can be produced around half the time with shutters speeds as low as 1/2sec at 35mm, which is roughly four stops slower than the workaday rule of thumb would allow for handheld shooting.

10. Zeiss Loxia 25mm f/2.4 Distagon T* 


The Loxia class is an attractive proposition, with useful focal lengths and, if the 25mm f/2.4 is anything to go by, excellent qualities. The new 25mm f/2.4 is compact, beautiful to use in a most traditional way, squarely of the tactile high grade feel that is rarely seen. The price ordinary usage, a price is the quantity of payment or compensation given by one party to another in return for one unit of goods or may be slightly on the high side, but then again what price superiority? Some may question the manual focus, but with this lens, it is so easy to find the point of focus that with minimal practice it should at the end of the day become second nature. Admittedly that will not suit everyone.

All in all, a lovely lens that matches well to the Sony FE full frame mirrorless cameras.

11. Samyang Premium MF 14mm f/2.4 


The Samyang Premium MF 14mm f/2.4 is a high-class performer and in fact, rather exciting to use. As this is a manual lens, a tripod is recommended when out capturing photos (which you'll probably be using anyway) and you won't be discouraged with the results as sharpness can be stunning. The alternative technique of setting a reasonably small aperture, say f/8, and using depth of field to make safe sharpness throughout, can be very liberating and also yields excellent results but really, whatever technique you choose, the lens will deliver A- results.
