Fisheye recommendation for full frame mirrorless?

I am thinking on a fisheye for meteor showers and quick milky way landscapes. The camera is a nikon z6, so I can basically fit anything due to the short flange.

Any recommendation on a good fisheye with minimal vignetting and coma? For nikon F mount I know the sigma 2.8/15 and nikkor 2.8/16 but I could also mount canons which I don't know anything about.

A general question: how does the focal length of a fisheye will impact the image? In the rectilinear world a 2.8/15 should have a much larger entrance pupil than a 2.8/8mm, making the former much better for picking up faint stars. Does that apply for fisheyes too? (Am I better with a 2.8/15 than e.g a 2.8/10mm?)
