I just spent an extended weekend in the Canadian Rockies and had the pleasure of shooting Fuji’s venerable 16mm f/1.4 lens. Today’s Sony 24mm f/1.4 GM lens is effectively the same lens (less the full-frame aperture differences) as the Fuji.

It took five days for the 16mm Fuji lens to become my favourite lens ever. I’d say it took only two days, really.

This Sony lens looks amazing, particularly for wide-angle portraiture. Too bad for some of the flaring characteristics, mind you.

If I was still shooting Sony, this lens would skyrocket to the top of my wishlist.
