MF Utrawide Zooms. How many are there?
« on: July 04, 2020, 01:32:26 »
They don't have to be stellar, but are kind of few and far. (I'll try first.)

From the old Nikkormat days I have a Sigma 21-35. 36mp may be pushing too far on this one, but it isn't a slouch.
For S & G's I picked up a Samyang 18-28/4-4.5. It is a wobbly, somewhat loose zoom & focus ring, but stopped down I have gotten some great results.

Are there others worth adding? There has to be a few more.

The silly little Df opened a 30 some year window deluding that I'm 30 something again with a proud sack of glass. ;) I wish they had a screensaver that looks like pebbled vinyl with film holder to nix the rear display.

I'm not sure if it counts as ultra wide but there is the Nikon 25-50mm f/4.

I would say no. Super/Ultra wide starts at 20/maybe 21mm and shorter, 24mm and above is conventional wide angle
one could as well say (if one makes a difference between super and ultra wide, ultra should contain at least 15 mm or below)
