Lens choice

I have a Canon EOS 200D and I would like an 'old fashioned' style wide angle lens where I can manually focus to infinity.
I have manual focus on my current lens but it is a continuously rotating ring that sends an electronic signal to the camera.
I want a definite 'end stop' type of focus if this makes any sense.
Are there any suitable lenses preferably around 10 to 18mm?

The dome is a ...
