Sony FE 55mm f1.8 for Astrophotography?
5 months ago

Has anyone used this lens on an A7, A7R, A7S for 1X shots of star fields (astrophotography)?

How sharp is this lens wide open at f1.8 for this purpose?

Any other recommendations faster than f2?  I have heard that the Nikkor 50mm f1.2 is very sharp at f2.  Would it be sharper than the Sony 55mm at f2?

Thanks very much.
