Rokinon/Samyang 10mm f2.8 vs. 14mm f2.8 vs 16mm f2.0

Just getting into astrophotography and planning to shoot Geminid on Dec 14. I have a Canon EOS Rebel T3i (600D):

- 14mm generally seems to be a favorite amongst many and considering that I am planning to go full frame in about a year it would save me some money down the line. It is currently $259 on Amazon

- However, 10mm would capture "more" with the same aperture so seems like a better choice for astro (but surprised that I haven't seen that many reviews). Am concerned a bit about fisheye effect but from online pictures I've found doesn't seem like it is a concern. It is currently $349 on Amazon

- And last but not least, 16mm f2.0 has a larger aperture (so more light) but less "area". It is currently $254 on Amazon
