A bright lens that is sharp into the corners full open is also very nice for astrophotography.

Astro requires not a razor sharp lens but a wide lens that has good coma performance. Which is very rare wide-open.

agree that coma is more important, but it is already clear to me from the first images that the Canon G1X mkII is not a good astro lens.

F2 sharp corners is more likely to be used for interior shooting. With dull lighting and wide-angle needs.

for interior shooting?? Seems to me you need very good DOF for that most of the times - unlike outside architecture, and in that case I'm not talking about Realtor pictures but architecture in its surroundings which often doesn't need much DOF because of the distance.
