Opinions on the XF 16mm f/2.8? (Astrophotography specifically)

Hello forum,

I would be interested in anyone thoughts, opinions or experiences with the 16mm f/2.8, specifically in regards to Astrophotography? The lenstip reveiw suggests it has high coma at f/2.8 which would probably be a deal breaker for me, or at least no reason to buy it above another lens.

I would also be interested in thoughts on its capabilities for general photography, especially landscape, but I suspect it performs quite well for those purposes.

To me, it looks really good, shame about the high barrel distortion, but still pretty good for the price. The coma has me worried though.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

Best Regards,
