I dug through the forums here, and I didn't see a dedicated thread (there was some good info in the 12-24mm thread tho).
I'm looking into this lens mostly for astrophotography, so I can shoot a wide view of night skies, milky way mostly.
I tried this out with my 24-105 for the meteor shower last weekend, and found that I need something faster, and something wider, so the Rokinon seems to satisfy both of these needs.
I have two big questions:
1) does anyone have any experience shooting at infinity @ f/2.8 with this lens, does it have a fairly flat field of focus?
2) Has anyone had experiencing correcting the strong distortion in ACR 7? Is there a profile for a FF camera plus this lens in it that works well?
And of course, any general opinions about this lens would be great.
Thanks in advance!!
