Just a genuine question, I really fancy a Nikon Z 20mm f1.8, but at 1K UK price I will have to wait, is there an alternative for basically a starter in Astro photography?

I think maybe not but it's just nice to ask and explore any possible options.

Thanks

Peter

Alternative is 24-70 f/4. 4mm difference is not huge, at f/4 stack multiple exposures to minimise noise. I got 20/1.8 S when it came out and I'm very happy with results.

Why don't you get the lens from e-infinity? It's very popular in europe. Warranty is one year but lenses especially primes are not known to malfunction.

This sounds good Sacred

I have never bought from them but a good saving.

Thank you.

Their lenses are grey market. Imported from Hong Kong meaning official warranty is not valid in europe and UK. They offer seller warranty for one year, meaning they refund and money you spend for repairs during one year period. Hundreds of happy buyers from Croatia, savings were much better few years ago. I have personal experience buying dslr from that site. Don't want this to be advertising post just want to point for cheaper but still brand new alternative. If you're into low light 20/1.8 wont disappoint.
