Re: Rokinon/Samyang 14mm F/2.4 SP/XP Lens Quality

Hi!

I want to have point-like stars and that's why I normally prefer less coma over a faster lens. The resolution also depends on your camera and I don't see there a high-megapixel camera. I don't see a big difference between the Samyang and Sigma 14mm lens and for parameter testing lenstip is your friend. Stopped down the difference isn't that big:

Are you stopping your lens down as starting rockets are rather bright compared to stars.

The normal workaround for night photography with WA lenses is panorama photography, but that is slightly difficult for starting rockets
