Hi all, I'm thinking of buying this for astro and low light landscapes.

Has anyone had any experience with this lens if so what do you think of it thanks

I got the FE version, planning to use it mostly for astro and night time photography.  It showed up right before my trip to Iceland, so I wasn’t able to test it out beforehand.  It seemed almost as big and heavy as my 70-200 GM I also brought with me, along with other lenses.  Had also brought a new tripod (slightly smaller and lighter for travel), and it was heavy enough I couldn’t set it up in a vertical orientation without the screw coming loose on the mounting plate.  I didn’t lose the camera (thankfully), but the camera would be pointing downward after a few seconds.  Missed a great shot of the aurora above the Hallgrimskirkja church my last night there because of that.  It worked better with my heavier tripod when I got back home, but I’m still planning to swap it for a 24mm f1.4 GM eventually.
