Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 Versus ZEISS Batis 25mm f/2: Which is the Best for Astrophotography?

If you’re looking at shooting NEOWISE or some astrophotography, which lens would be your best bet?Astrophotography is one of the trickier disciplines, with more knowledge and sometimes more gear required to get the shot you’re after. It has always been one of the genres of photography I’ve been drawn to most, and when possible, I’ll shoot it. However, I live just outside of London and so the light pollution borders the ridiculous for 2 hours in all directions!One difficulty of shooting great, expansive images of the night sky is getting the right lens. You need a wide lens (astro can and often should be shot with longer lenses, but generally a wide lens is better for capturing the Milky Way or more stars) and that wide lens needs to be fast. Typically, getting both of those features has been expensive, though prices have been more accommodating in recent years. In this video, landscape and astrophotographer, Mike Smith, does a side-by-side comparison of two of the strongest lenses for Sony full frame cameras: the Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 and the ZEISS Batis 25mm f/2.
