    HI Matthew!
    I follow you videos and aprreciate them a lot. I’m foccussed on astrophotography (besides landscapes) and of course watched all/most of your vlogs. Just now I use the XT3 with 10-24mm f4, 35mm f2.8 and I badly want to get the 16mm f1.4 (my friend has got the Samyang 12mm 2.0). Yes, I did watch your comparison video about those two. I know the Sammy is kind of cheap and plasticy and the Fuji is propper quality. I can get the a 5 days old 16mm for 670€ shipped. Still not sure. So many people (including you) say the 16mm is a terrific lens but the Sammy does the better astro-job. How can this work just thinking of data f1.4 vs. f2.0. Manual vs. autofocus. Plastik vs. metal body. Do you still use the 16mm for astro and go to 1.8-2.0 to avoid coma? (Is it then greater during the night?) How do you clean coma oder would be a trakker the best solution to use this oustasnding lens with very best results? Can you advise? Best from Salzburg, Austria, Josef

      Hello Josef, yes this is a great dilemma. I basically only use the Samyang for Astro work and the Fuji for multiple feature outside of astro. Yes, I Shoot the stars at f2 then use the f.4 for the foreground and blend them together. The F1.4 is also great for handheld low light, filming in lowlight and yes the AF although not amazing. If you are on the fence I would make my mind up on money, then use. Iif its just for astro and budget go the Sammy. If you wish to use it for astro and other stuff and money isn’t a object go the 16mm 1.4 you will not regret it 😀

        Thanks for following up Matthew! I know, damn it, you can not decide for me on spending money. I am still hesitating. Thought, hoped the XF 16/1.4 would be best quality for astro. Pricewise I can handle it (below 700). And yes, I not only do astro, some other landscape projects or so. Still, there need to be a really great lens for any astro setting. I fear it will show up buying both, ever not right now. Cheers. J.
