Re: Considered the best IQ in 15-17mm, 1.7-1.8 prime?

I've only tested out the 15mm f/1.7, and it's one of the sharpest lenses I use. I use it for night sky landscapes with the milky way, and for night video in 4K. @ f/1.7.

Milky Way Panorama with 15mm f/1.7

I have no clue if the 15mm f/1.7 is the best.  But it works great at f/1.7.  Bokeh is decent, close focus is very close, lens flare is well controlled, almost no CA, the Manual Focus ring is smooth and accurate, the lens barrel aperture dial is fun, and comes with a metal hood and 2 lens caps.
