Samyang 12 f/2.8 for astrotracer work with K1 ?

Hi,

I'm looking for an ultra wide-field lens for wide-field astrophotography with K-1 and astrotracer (I plan to backpack in the Alps this summer)

The astrotracer cannot work properly in the corners with rectilinear ultra-wide-angle lenses (as the magnification increases as one approaches the edges of the frame) so I was leaning towards the Samyang fish-eye which seems to have good reviews.

Anyone tried this particular combo for astrowork ?

thanks !

Dan
