  • Victor

    The weight is suspicious.
    The manual focus part-frame 16/2 has a weight of 580g, and this one is lighter, for a full format and with af-gut inside - 2,5 times less.

    It will be very interesting to look at the samples.

  • UstasFritZZZ

    For astro, there should be just a cannon! This is the kind of lens I'm waiting for!

  • Oleg

    For astrophotography, a wider angle is probably needed

    • Rodion

      No, it seems like the optics of the 24 / 1.x class are the most popular.

      • Oleg

        I thought astrophoto was the lot of super-widths, I wonder what they would offer to crop, it seems like it should go to crop too

        • Michael

          At super-widths, coma and other field aberrations, so that less than 24 does not seem to like it anymore. Only fisheye is wider

        • Anatoly

          It is already known, 12/2 autofocus, obviously - the development of the well-known Samyangov manual width for crop.
