Iím looking to compliment my 16-35 f4 with a wider and faster prime lens. Considering the Laowa 15 f2 and sigma 14 f1.8. Does anyone have one of these lying around not being used?

literally sold mine two days ago!

for astrophotography laowa 15mm isn't very good at f2, you'd need to stop down to f2.8.
So instead of laowa, if you can still return your 16-35mm I would suggest buying tamron 17-28mm f2.8 instead which would serve both your purposes.

But tbh you can just use the 16-35mm with current sensors since high iSO performance is rather good. If you are looking for perfectness in terms of coma corrections for stars, then the sigma 14mm f1.8 or 24GM are some of the best lenses around for this.

- where? You turn these things around too fast, I canít keep up!

Thanks for the pointers. Think I might need to go the 14mm sigma route. It is a beast, but sounds like perfection for when you need it.

sold it on talkphotography. need to keep your eyes peeled

if i had known you'd be interested I'd have sold it to you. i am thinking of selling my 85GM and buying FE85/1.8. if you are interested in this trade let me know (also not in any hurry to do this atm)
