Having stopped shooting Phase/Schneider/Cambo some months ago in favour of D800e, this is the missing lens for me: I'd like something fairly sharp edge to edge and with great resolution and micro contrast on centre, with no more field curvature than can be defeated by focussing on a distant hillside and selecting f8 (though 5.6 would be ideal) and no strong distortion or CA. it would be somewhere in the 24 to 28mm range.
None of the Zeiss glass seems to fit (the likely candidates are 'too fast' meaning too much field curvature and distortion) and the Nikon 14-24 doesn't take well to filters. The nikkor 28 1.8g is great but not for distant planar landscapes. The other zooms seem too compromised in one way or another.
I wish someone would make a landscape wide, a slow (f4 or 5.6) but very well corrected lens.
Anyone else feel the same or have any suggestions? I've read so many reviews and tried quite a few lenses, but nothing seems to match...
