Looking at the corner crops at f11' one can see some elongation of the specular highlights in the snow (coma). No wings though. Is coma the same at f2.8? Thanks for the preview!
Take a look at the new video and judge for yourself. I haven't been able to shoot at night yet, unfortunately, because it has been snowing here pretty much non-stop and there hasn't been any clear skies. I will be posting a new article somewhere in the next 24 hours with a lot more crops from another series along with comparisons to other lenses.
If I get a look at the night sky (I only have two more nights with the lens before it moves on to another reviewer, unfortunately), I will definitely be looking at coma. I was just written to by another photographer who has the lens in hand and he stated that the lens is awesome at night. Low coma and very crisp points of light. My new resolution comparison with the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 (my current astraphotography lens) makes me think that he's probably right. http://bit.ly/1Aac03H
