My wife loves landscape photography and I love capturing the stars. We are both amateurs and we have been using our stock Canon EOS 750D lens (18-55mm) so far with 'ok' results (both kit and user-related of course).
I am actively looking for a nice star lens and my wife is looking for a landscape lens. The current drawbacks of our lens now are:
- Distortion at the edges visible in landscapes
- Aperture too small for low-light conditions and stargazing
Looking at our requirements I have the feeling they are almost equal:
- Prime lens
- Small focal length (<= 18mm)
- No autofocus needed (everything is at infinity)
- Large aperture
As such... I think I can combine them in 1 lens. Am I missing something? I am thinking about buying the Rokinon/Samyang 16mm f/2.0 which is recommended by a PetaPixel blog.
