Hi, I believe such question has been asked several times, but I could not find a match with my choices, so here it is. BACKGROUND: I'm an amateur photographer. Most focal lengths I shoot at are 17mm, 50mm and 100mm (mainly cities and macros). I edit pictures with Lightroom. I have no experience with panoramas nor photo stacking or Photoshop layers, etc, although I can learn if it wont take days to edit 1 picture I have a Canon 60D APS-C and I am NOT planning to change to a full frame in the...

This question has probably already been asked but I am asking it again anyway.I want a fast prime wide angle lens. I am looking at the 16mm or 12mm Rokinon (Samyang) f/2.0 lens for lowlight scenes such as street and nightclub photography (with and without flash). I won't be doing astro-photography but probably some landscapes. So which focal length should I choose? I know 12mm would be best for street and landscapes but 16mm is better for club scenes (less distortion) but which is the most...

I'm quite new to photography and i'm looking for a lens for astrophotography which isnt too expensive. I asked photorec toby on youtube which lens he recommended and he recommended the Rokinon/Samyang 14mm f/2.8 (~90 degree field of view). Although its for a full framed camera meaning that it'll effectively be a 22mm f/5 on a crop-framed camera? Would it not be better to go for a lens which is designed for the APS-C sensor to get better quality? Such as the Rokinon/Samyang 10mm f/2.8 (~106...

Hi everyone, I'm new to dpreview. I've acquired many information from this forum. Last year I bought a Nikon d5300 with their kit lens(18-55mm) and I'm trying out different things with it. As I'm more interested in time-lapse of landscapes and cityscapes, I bought Mefoto Roadtrip tripod. I'm a big fan of astrophotography, I'm thinking of making more milky way time-lapses(hopefully). Being a beginner I'm thinking of getting Nikon 35mm f/1.8 DX, as that is the only lens which is in my budget. I...

Landscape photography is my favorite and I am interested in trying out some new filters, I've played around with screw in Polarizers and cheap NDs, but I would like to try some square/slide in filters so I can use ND Grads. I use a Nikon D7100 and my primary lens for landscapes is a Samyang 16mm F2.0. What size filters should I get? Will 85mm be big enough for my lens or I need to spend the extra money and get 100mm? From what I've read, Lee appears to be the best quality, but its a bit out...

Hi, I currently going away to Iceland and wanting to take astro-photographs when I am there. I currently have a Cannon 60D. What is the difference between the 16mm f2.0 Lens vs 24mm F1.4 Lens? I understand the 16mm gives you more of a full frame.  But, with the 24mm gives you 1.4 the f stop higher, which is less light.  In your opinion, which lens is better?

I'm considering btw Samyang 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC and 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS. Although I use D7000, the reason I consider 14mm is that I have a plan to change my body into full-frame some day, especially D810 or D610 someday. However, many reviews say 14mm has somewhat bothering vignettings and distortions. Hence I additionally started to consider 16mm, which is made for crop model, and many reviews say it is excellent and has high performance with great sharpness. For reference, I want to...
