This lens will be no stranger to many photographers of every genre. That is, maybe aside from astrophotography. It's not a super common focal range to use for astro, but it's just as versatile at night as it is during the day. I set out with this lens across a number of scenarios to prove just how well this lens can perform at night.

The results make it a great option if you're looking for a lens that can be utilized during the day just as well as at night or if you're looking for a lens that might already be in your bag to head out with at night.

From single exposures during Moonset to long exposures using a star tracker, I really enjoyed having a zoom lens in my bag that could perform so well. Because I'm so accustomed to shooting with the SIGMA prime lenses, I shot with the star tracker a good majority of the time that I was shooting the Milky Way to pick up as much detail as possible with longer exposures.

Shadowlight

Whether it was a bit of Moonlight or blue glowing bioluminescence, I loved being able to approach scenes a bit differently than I typically would with one of my more frequently used wide angle lenses. I found myself often shooting within the 30-55mm focal range in scenarios where I might not have changed lenses if I was shooting at a fixed focal length. It was definitely a great experience not just in terms of results that I was happy with, but as a gentle reminder to switch things up while in the field.
