New lens for milky way photos?
Jul 12, 2013

I'm going to buy a new lens for Milky Way photos, star trails, etc.  I really like the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 but I don't want to spend the dough.  Would the Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 work nearly as well?  We're talking $800-900 price difference so I'm trying to get some opinions.

Will be used on a 6D.
