  • Excerpt: I am no expert but this lens works great for photographing the interiors of apartments prior to leasing. I have it attached to a Sony a7 so it is taking advantage of the full 14mm. It is wide but also shows great room height so rooms with cathedral ceilings come out great.
  • Pros: Accurate, Wide

Great lens for Astrophotography

Bryan Bzdula, Amazon

  • Summary: I've found this to be the perfect, affordable lens for astrophotography on a full frame DSLR. It does create some bad flares when shooting at bright points of light, ie street lamps. Because it is manual focus, I would suggest finding where the actual infinity focus point is in daylight.
