There's no comparison between the Nikon 180 and the Sigma 135, the Sigma is far superior, I've always found the nikkor to be over touted. I used to own the 180mm but it's fringing is annoying and from what I remember wasn't much usable until f/3.2 or 4. The sigma is near perfect at f/2.

I'd have to check some older images to see how the 180 rendered stars (in corners etc.) but there's nothing I miss about that lens for astro.
