NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S vs Samyang MF 14mm F2.8 Z

The difference in price, oh, about $2,000.

If I want the Nikkor, I most likely will have to wait until next summer. The Samyang I can buy next week, maybe $300 to $500. The question is. Is the Samyang worth owning? The no autofocus might not be a problem. I am attempting to figure out astrophotography, (not as easy as it sounds.) I see my self sitting in Yellowstone Park taking long exposures of the Norris geyser basin, or figuring out how to combine photos into one.

I finally got a fx camera. z5. For the next years I will be slowly accumulating lenses. Maybe even get a 60 mega pixel z in a few years? As I grow old I will be spending a lot of time in National Parks. I am going to post a couple of pictures from my rx100. As a basic idea of what I kind of pictures I am trying to figure out..

These are a couple of my first efforts with the in camera multiple photo settings. I admit I haven't got it figured out yet. I only am only posting them in hopes of getting some lens advice. I expect to pursue this style of photo and get it figured out after a while. These from Z5 with an 24 200 f4 - f6. That's the most camera I could pay for at one time.

Apart from the somewhat bizarre derailleur + star trail shot, you seem to be doing OK!

 

Something very weird going on with the left horse's ears.....:eek:

 

I have the previous version of Samyang 14mm, there is some coma on FX, but not so bad.

 

The newer version is a new construction, so hopefully better corrected.

 

The Nikon 12-24mm Z is just pretty expensive, the 14-30mm Z is cheaper but has pretty bad coma too.
