I found a 24mm f/2 Vivitar lens in canon FD breech mount and it got my interest. Basically because the brightest 24mm I have is an f/4 and I'm wondering if this lens might give me better results for doing a night sky time lapse. I could stop down to f/2.8 and it would be one stop brighter than my current lens.

The other advantage is that my Nikon Z lens is focus by wire which is much harder to use for focusing on stars.

Thanks,

Jones

You may find this web page interesting, on "Cult Classics".
It includes a section on Vivitar Series 1 lenses.

Which web page?  Thanks.
