Have any of you tested this Z 20 mm prime (or the Z 24 mm 1.8) to the 20 mm on the Nikon NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S Lens, particularly for astro images? I'm a big fan of the old Ai-S 20 mm and 24 mm lenses and am wondering if the 20 mm and 24 mm focal distances on the zoom are as good, or nearly as good as the new Z primes of the same focal lengths. I'm debating between the primes and the zoom. Thanks for your time, Andy
Asked by: andy
We have not tested the lenses side by side for optical performance but based on customer feedback so far, more people are using the 20mm f1.8 for astrophotography than the 14-24mm.

How does this lens compare with the Zeiss Milvus 21mm f/2.8 lens? (I realize the Zeiss is manual focus and requires an FTZ converter for use on Nikon mirrorless, and these are not factors for me.)
Asked by: Michael
I do love this lens. I cannot provide you comparisons with the Zeiss that I don't own - but I can also tell you from the guy that I follow (Hudson Henry Photography) and my amateur experience that this lens is extremely sharp edge to edge. I have been amazed. My only disappointment has been my own errors in making poor f-stop choices a few times (field of flowers). Unfortunately B&H doesn't allow us to have a link to Flickr pictures - nor upload examples that I can find. I wish you luck in whichever lens you choose! I also must say I LOVE the fact that it opens up to 1.8!

Does this have coma in the corners when wide open at 1.8?
Asked by: Colin
In reading the Camera Labs review more carefully, they state that coma is visible in the corners at f1.8, but that the performance is better than the similar, but older Nikkor F lens. They also state that Coma is almost gone at f2.8.
