When I first shot with the lens in Namibia back in January this year I shot it wide open at f/1.4 but wasn't entirely happy with the stellar profiles so tried it at f/2.0 and f/2.8 last month on my Crete trip and was really happy with 3 minute subs at f/2.8

I will be shooting 30 minute panels of 10 x 3 minute subs at f/2.8 for the project.

It gives me excellent signal to noise ratio and enough subs for the outlier rejection to be effective in removing space junk.

this is like 12 min at f/1.8. If it is worth it. Maybe I need to check again. Sigma Art lenses differ though. Good look with it. Corona numbers have gone pretty bad lately in Namibia... Let's hope for the better
