Budget Ultra wide angles (sub 400 EUR, about 18mm)

Hi,

I'm looking for a budget ultra wide angle lens in the 15 to 20mm range. I like the effect but can't really justify shelling out lots of money for one. If it might be good for astro, that would be a nice bonus, as would be light weight and compactness. MF is OK, although AF would be prefered.

Top contender is the Samyang 18 f2.8. Don't know about it's Astro capabilities, though.

Then there's the Tamron 20mm. It's a bit large, but I do like it's pseudo-Macro.

And that's that? Nothing like the Samyang 12 f2 for APS-C? Not even chinese lenses? Am I missing something?
