  1. Stunning shot!
    I love your work!
    Can you tell the EXIF data?
    I’m stuck in the choice between the 14-24 f2.8 and the 16-35 f4, I’d like to use it for astrophotography too but in the first lens I’d feel the lack of a usable focal length for “normal” shots (in my bag the next in order is a 85 1.4 prime)…

    • Thanks. I have 16-35/F4 and loving it. As you know 14-24/2.8 is a stellar lens but bulky and heavy. The special filters that you can get for that lens is expensive. One option is to get 16-35VR lens and add a samyung 14mm/2.8 lens. This is a manual lens and does not take filters but very sharp and excellent for astro stuff. It is cheap. If you go with the 14-24 you have a one lens solution for astro and landscape. I recommend having a 2.8 lens for astro photography.
      The picture was taken with the samyung 14mm/2.8 lens at f2.8, iso 800, D800 and over 145sec exposure using a tracker.
