Funny, I always heard that a f/1.4 wouldn't work with a milky way shot. I guess they were wrong!

hougaard Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2012
The lens becomes quite soft overall and in the corners at 1.4, but 1.8 is still surprisingly good!

Meema Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Would soft corners really matter in a shot like this, where the attention of the viewer is directed more towards the centre? The darkness might also hide the corners a bit.
