I have one question. I am serious as I don't know. Who needs f2.8 lens in a uwa lens?
what type of photography needs more open lenses?
I always thought uwa are for more landscape photography. I always thought that smaller apertures are better for landscape.
If the f4 lens is so good who would want the f2.8 lens.
Wedding photographers, for one. Or event shooters that need a faster aperture to help compensate for less than ideal lighting. People that shoot nightscapes. There's a surprising number of applications for a wider aperture even at wide angles. There's a reason why Canon makes a 24mm f/1.4...and why a number of people here are clamoring for Sigma to make a competitor.
But yes, landscape shooters are not ones who typically need a wider aperture.
