I think you’ll find F2.8 not necessary unless you’re needing every photon possible, like wide field astro.
I’d go with the 10-18 STM here. Why? Flare resistance, quite literally just for that. You’ll be shooting with light sources, and the Tokina flares. I loved my Tokina. Razor sharp. Never needed to focus, just threw it to infinity and I always got razor sharp, pin point stars, it was a luxury. But, it’s flare resistance is poor, and I got tired of the massive flare effects and weird mechanical element flares that happen with really intense light sources. I eventually sold it off and went to something with more flare resistance and I don’t regret it. You really have to weigh that in when going ultrawide.
Very best, Heya, I think you ‘ll find F2.8 not necessity unless you ‘re needing every photon possible, like wide field astro.I ‘d go with the 10-18 STM here. Why ? flare resistance, quite literally equitable for that. You ‘ll be shooting with light sources, and the Tokina flares. I loved my Tokina. Razor astute. never needed to focus, merely threw it to eternity and I always got razor sharp, bowling pin point stars, it was a luxury. But, it ‘s solar flare resistance is poor, and I got tired of the massive flare out effects and eldritch mechanical component flares that happen with truly acute light sources. I finally sold it off and went to something with more flare resistance and I do n’t regret it. You truly have to weigh that in when going ultrawide.Very best, The 10-18 is amazingly solar flare repellent. just amazing. I did some oeuvre just final night shooting from the wings of a stage toward the audience — then immediately into the degree lights. Zero flare. Just zero. The lights were pinpoints.
In a lens this bantam, I do n’t think the physique quality is a real consequence, unless one is shooting in a actually physically boisterous environment — expecting the lens to take some hits and even routine faithfully.
I would normally refuse to own a varying aperture lens, but I equitable shoot this lens as an f/5.6 and just crank up ISO as necessary. Between the fact that it is an ultra-wide and has IS, it ‘s a feasible combination. besides, inasmuch as I mix a fortune of video with my cultivate now, the IS has become all-important.
If ultra-wide was my primary money focal length ( as it is for an architecture buddy of mine ), I ‘d skip even the Tokina and go for a Canon L extremist wide. TANSTAAFL — The merely unbreakable rule in Photography
