Hi, I have done a bit of research on taking night sky pictures. I want to take some shots of the Milky Way near a couple of landmarks in New Hampshire. Being a bit of a novice here, I have read a few blogs where people are saying Canon lenses don't cut it because of bad coma. Is that accurate? and recommendations as an example for a Rokinon 24 over the 24L that canon makes.
I only have 3 lenses at the moment with my 5d3. I've got a 24-105L, 100macroL and the 70-300L.
My results with the 24-105L weren't impressive. I'm going to try the macro lens this weekend if I get a clear night, with the assumption that being a prime its light gathering will be significantly better? but I'm not adverse to picking up the Rokinon 24 if it is actually good for this type of shot. The problem is I understand it can be soft, and I'm not sure what use I would have for it besides night shots, where the 24L I could see myself using more.
