So, I have mainly done deep space to date, dove right in the deep end so to speak. But want to get more Milky Way shots and not sure what lens to use exactly.
I have an APS-C Canon 77D so need to account for this.
From what I have seen, and within budget I am going Samyang/Rokinon unless I find a second hand Sigma, but the following come up all the time:
Now, on a crop, I am worried the 24mm may not be enough? I don't plan to get much landscape in there, would it work alright? I am happy to take 4 or 5 shots and mosaic them.
The 16mm seems a good mid point, but anyone who mentions it seems to sway to 14 or 24 in the end and not many people seem to pick that actual lens. I don't plan on going full-frame in a rush so not worried about it being crop frame only lens. But would the increased view prove better over the stop difference?
14mm - This seems very popular and would give me the best viewing angle and coverage, however I see comments about "moustache" effects on the images which need fixing (ok to do this), but then the 2.8 would be hitting the top of the ideal fstop right? So a little confused why this gets so many recommendations - is it purely down to most people being FF and wanting smaller than the 24mm?
The 24mm is a little pricier, hence the question as I don't want to spend money on the bigger focal length if quailty is about the same as the 16mm and have to do extra post editing.
I can only afford 1 - which would you recommend?
Off to Iceland next week and want to pick one up before I go.
My other lenses are 50mm 1.8, 18-65(?) kit lens, 135mm f2.3 but I am considering a new 135mm f2 Samyang too - but that is another months costs.
