    finally got a chance to get out and try out my relatively new Samyang 14mm ultra wide angle lens

    this is using the Canon 5D Mk3, 3200 ISO, 14mm f/l, f2.8, 20 sec exp. The view is to the SW
    I travelled for about 40 minutes to get south of Sydney and away from the main city lights and their skyglow

    Great picture Dave. I always get a little envious when I see sky pictures like this. :smile:

    Thanks mate :)
    OK over last 30 mins or so just been annotating that image to point out a few things to help people with orientation

    I'm quite impressed with this Samyang 14mm lens, it produces a nice colour rendition and with
    very little aberration, colour or spherical around the edges of the image. Cant say the same for the my Canon EF 50mm f1.4 ... the spherical aberration around the edges was quite bad
