Excerpt: I shoot with prime lenses and I spend months reading forums/reviews to find the best wide angle lens for me. Although it seems like 14mm is bit too wide on my full frame, I now know that I found the best wide angle lens for me.
Pros: Durable, Highly Compatible, Image Sharpness, Inexpensive, Professional Quality
Excerpt: I've only had this lens for a few weeks but I bought specifically to capture the milky way and it did not dissapoint. Its super fast and the wide angle allows you to capture more of the sky. I am so glad I went with this lens versus the pricier Canon version
Excerpt: I was going to give it just 4 stars because it is fully manual, but hey, for a lens that is, it deserves 5 stars. In fact, I like the fact that its focusing ring has distance in both feet and meters to guide you, which is very helpful when you're running and gunning.
Pros: Faux "l" Red Stripe, Faux "l" Series Red Strip, Lightweight, Price, Professional Quality
Excerpt: I purchased this lens because it came highly recommended as 'a great wide angle lens for astro-photography'...The price was right and the lens works great. Got some killer Milky Way shots with this lens my first time out. I can certainly recommend this lens with all confidence.
Excerpt: Canon's 14mm II L performs better but costs 6 times more. So, for full sensor coverage; sharp (except corners); minimal CA; good contrast and reasonable vignetting this lens is a keeper for me.
Excerpt: I use this lens for night sky and landscape work. It is quite sharp and simple to use. At this focal length focus issues are minimal, but I do recommend memorizing some depth of field parameters for often used situations and a D of F app for your smart phone or pad is strongly advised.
Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Professional Quality
