Opinions on the Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/2 FE Zero-D Lens?

With a new Sony A7R3 body, I'm ready to raise the bar with lenses for wide astro pics, so I'm looking at options around 15mm FF. This Laowa lens is usually rated very high with folks who are shooting that style.

This lens has come up a few times in this forum, but I never found conclusive remarks (some posts were about going to check this in the future, etc). Sorry if I missed the correct post.

So, if anyone has first hand experience with this lens, can you comment on corner performance and anything else relevant? (good center I can do already with what I have:) ). Even better if you tried the Sony version, and even better if you used this on the higher pixel count A7's.

Thanks.
