Cheaper would be good.. Mainly using for landscapes and cityscapes, might bring around when travelling too. Currently seeing the 10-18mm. No preference towards zoom or prime.

P.s. i own the 16-70mm f/4, is it wide enough at 16mm (24mm equivalent)?

Cheapest option is to get the 16mm prime plus vcl-ecu2 wide angle converter to make it 12mm

If you like landscapes, this is a piece of good lens.

Personally I have the 10-18mm and the Samyang 12mm (with a Sony a6000), I have always used the 12mm for landscape as it is much sharper than the 10-18mm. For night photography even better cos it can open up to f2.

The only drawback is its manual focus. But if you are doing landscape/architecture photography and with Sony's focus peaking capability, it's not a big problem for me.

I would say It's a real bargain lens

I see.. Do you prefer the focus magnifier or peaking for sharp images?

I use focus peaking more often for landscapes. Think magnifier works more effectively for portraits.

Anyway focus peaking is easier to use - for me

I'm looking to buy a mirrorless camera. Is the Sony A6300 so much better than the A6000 or it's ok to buy the latter? Any recommended shops to buy from? Tks!
