Hopefully a test is en route. The 20mm 1.8 looks very intriguing maybe the manual focus is a bit better to use due to the focus throw in night time situations.

Such a sexy sun star even at f/11. I wish other manufacturers would be able to offer something comparable in their UWA zooms. So far only the Nikon and Sigma UWA primes have something similar. But, I guess my Tamron 15-30 also has an ok one.

Whatever it will be called. :P

Great test! Looking for a wide angle lens for Astro and doing comparisons. This helped a lot.

Whoa, I didn't expect such a letdown. I was expecting the D650 and D850. :/

D810 killer. Seems like Nikon and Canon don't seem to notice they're falling behind.

Damn, he knows what he's doing! Stunning shots! What I would give to shoot such a subject matter, although I take it that he has pretty good skills for something that difficult, and I would probably have trouble taking anything similar.

This could be a good Samyang 14mm 2.8 replacement. Let's see.

This looks great. A bit late to be honest, but what to expect from Nikon and Canon these days? The only thing missing is a tilting touch screen and software features comparable to Olympus, oh and a realistic price tag. Glad though Canon users finally get something good again after the Mark III letdown (that's what I heard from landscapers at least).

WordsOfFarewell: Maybe something to replace my Samyang if the sunstar looks good. Psyched. Although it'll be interesting to see how this fares against the Irix 15mm f2,4

Hm, f/4 for a prime is not enough light for the lack of zoom. But the sunstars look quite cool indeed.

Let's see if this can take on the Nikon 20mm 1.8 which is already a great lens (only night focus is awful due to the lack of focus throw). Looking forwards to this lens and what it can do.

Kamox: Are you telling me that we're getting a better lens than the venerable Nikkor 13/5.6 for 1/40th of the price?

Let's hope so! :)

Been using their products for years now. Very intrigued by this new line.

Damn, I'd so love to go there and take "falloutesque" shots. These look rather like uninspiring instagram "been there" shots though.

WordsOfFarewell: If there was a decent UWA lens that takes screw in filters I'd by one - I just don't find these square filters very practical in harsh environments.

Seems like for lowlight this is the camera to go, just like me beloved K5 was back in the day for crop. I expected excellency out of Pentax and they delivered on their promises.

Oh, are there any tests yet which show the quality of converted Nikon lenses? Getting a Pentax Body with Nikon lenses could be a good solution until some more lenses are released - and I wouldn't have to change the lens park right away. I somehow would like to return to Pentax to be honest. And about the Irix I have yet to see good practical tests but it looks promising indeed!

Damn, this is a landscaper's / astro photographer's dream. I wonder how one can wait 14 years to pick up a camera when something that unique is waiting to be captured. Those are just stunning shots. I'd give leg to get to shoot such conditions! He truly is blessed! (although I would imagine social live can be difficult down there)

Interesting shots! I would love to see some shots with the astro tracker in action though. As that might be a point of consideration for many landscapers like me.
