I think it depends on what you are trying to do. I use mine for time lapse and having stars transform into flying birds towards the edges of the frame is distracting (this would happen with the Canon 24mm EF II for example). I also don't care about the corners as I'm cropping towards the central portion of the image for a 2.4:1 aspect ratio.

However for a single shot, the noise introduced from vignetting correction would be more difficult to deal with than fixing the coma on a few bright stars.

I may have to rent the Nikon someday and try it out. Thanks for the nice information!

I used the 14-24 with a D800, not a Canon. I never used it with an adapter for Canon, which may or may not be a PIA. Lens Rentals offers both the lens and adapter though. Give it a go!
