Samyang 85mm f/1.4 - questions

Hi all,

I want a good mid telephoto lens to use on street and astrophotography. I am torn between the Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 D and the Samyang. I am getting used to focus manually so AF is not very important.

I have some questions though, does the Samyang meter on a D300? Do I have to use M mode and calculate exposure manually? I found the bokeh of the Nikkor to be pretty bad in some samples I saw yesterday, so how does the Samyang compare bokeh-wise?

On astrophotography: does anybody have experience with this lens on this particular application? Does the lens behave nicely regarding chromatic aberrations, coma and astigmatism?

Thanks!
