My sample of the old EF 28mm f/2.8 is free of this wide open. Sigma 20mm f/1.8 has lots of coma/astigmatism but only noticeable on the brighter spots. Tokina 16-28mm - seems smaller than Sigma, but cone-like or bird-like, depends on focus and centering of the particular sample of the lens. I need to switch to a camera with live view focus checking before I can use it properly at night, infinity focus mark is never correct. The Tokina has hideous rainbow flares though (streetlights, moon...)
