Re: UWA lens choice

I also have the 14-30/4 and really like it (for landscape use for the usual reasons - small, light, can take 100mm filter system (without vignetting even @ 14mm), more than acceptable IQ, etc)

But for astro work - it's not ideal with an f/4 aperture (unless you're using a tracker - which I also plan to do)

I also have the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 (which I've used for many years on my D600/D750) and I love (perhaps I got a really good copy - mine is sharp wide open and very little coma, etc)

With my Z7 I recently bought the newer Samyang 14mm f/2.4 (still an F-mount lens) which is noticeably better in a number of ways

Anyway I did some testing of all three lenses for astro recently and posted my thoughts here:
