I bought this lens for astrophotography in mindc so this review is for that alonec but Ill share a couple landscape photos with it. I used it with my Canon 70D with this Neewer timer (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003Q9RERY) and this Dolica Compact Tripod (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009YE462G) on a recent backpacking excursion. I have a more expensive L series lens that didnt even make it out of the bag. This lens was definitely made with landscape and astro in mind with its manual focusc but after a few test shotsc I didnt notice much. Most of those photos were take at or near infinity focus and if it saves me big bucksc Im all for it. br brThe Good: br-This is the fastest lens at this focal lengthc which makes it one of the best for ASP-C sensor cameras. I considered the 24mm f/1.4c but with reviews saying to step it down to 1.8 I opted for the wider angle. br-The focus is effortless and gives a lot of control through the range. This was perfect for focusing sharply in the middle of the night. br-Aspherical Elements - this camera was built to have great focus all the way to the edge of your photos. br brThe Meh- br-The construction is solidc but mostly plastic. Cost savings are a plus but it doesnt have the same heft. br-As wide as this lens isc Id love wider. Rokinon/Samyang doesnt have a fisheye for APS-C fast enough for astro yetc but when it does Ill be on the wait list to buy. br br(Astro photos taken at 18 seconds f/2.0)
