Samyang lens how wide to go


Recommended Posts

I need to get a wide lens for a project im doing and was wondering just how wide I need to push it.

I am going to take some star trails with a particular tree in the foreground and I'll be using the lens with a crop sensor.

The ones that come to mind are the 8mm fisheye and the 14mm 2.8.

I'm pretty sure that they will both suffice but which do you think is the better to purchase long term.

I have the Samyang 14mm f2.8 and can thoroughly recommend it. Quite sharp right to the edges.

Not so good for architecture though, but if that was your genre you'd probably be looking at a T/S lens.
