How good is this for both astrophotography and landscape photography?
Asked by: Matthew
The Samyang 12mm f/2.0 AF Compact Ultra-Wide Angle Lens for Sony E-Mount (B&H# SA1220SE) stands alone in its price range for a low cost ultrawide APS-C AF lens. Not only is it a speedy lens at f/2.0, but the combination of its two extra-low dispersion elements, one aspherical element, and one hybrid-aspherical element in combination with your setting the aperture to f/2.8 or higher do a tremendous job to virtually eliminate the many types of distortion you'd normally expect in this type of lens. Those abilities make it great for astrophotography and outstanding for shooting landscapes.

If using the lens on a camera in Manual focus mode, does the focus ring stop at infinity or does it keep going around and around?
Asked by: Beth
As this lens uses fly-by-wire focusing, it will spin indefinitely and has no hard stops.
