Which wide-angle zoom for astro+landscape (Nikkor vs Tamron vs Sigma)?

I wanted a Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 with an adapter for ages, but these new Sigma 14-24mm f2.8 and Tamron 15-30mm f2.8 VC seems to be good choices for Canon.

- Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8 is a proven and very good lens, but no autofocus and exif in Canon, and serious flare problems for non-astro work.
- Tamron 15-30mm f2.8 VC loses 1mm in the wide end but have VC for non-astro work. T3.3 in Tamron against T3.0 in Nikkor.
- Sigma 14-24mm f2.8 is too new to jump into conclusions yet: some reviews state great sharpness (even more than Nikkor) and less Chromatic Aberration, but some reviews state an average performace.
- Unfortunately Canon 16-35mm f2.8 is out of the league due to excessive vignetting.

Which one of the three would you pick for nightscape and ladscape photography and why?

I don't think it matters at all for terrestrial landscape stuff.

What will matter is the coma performance on any of them. You'll have to search that up specifically or look carefully at examples made with the lenses to see coma performance on the edges. I'm willing to bet the coma is poor on all of them.

Very best,

I can't talk for the Canon 16-35mm, but despite being zoom lenses they are very good dealing with coma. Nikkor is a legendary lens, but coma in extreme corners is actually better in Tamron and Sigma.

Currently I have a 14mm f2.8 Rokinon, it is stellar regarding coma. But luckly these zooms are quite comparable :)

I would choose between the 15-30 or the Rokinon 14mm F2.8 depending on how much you want to spend and how much you want to spend time returning the Rokinon (they have a LOT of copy variance and often are decentered. You have to return the bad ones until you find a good copy).

If not the 15-30, also look at the Samyang XP 14mm f/2.4 as well.

But if you want to use the lens for general landscape work, the 15-30 is a great choice; if you can bear it, literally.

I use the the canon 16-35L III but you say there is a problem with vignetting? one thing about those lenses aside from normal third party issues is the bulbous front element.

Yeah, I used the III as well and there is quite a bit of vignetting at WOA @16mm. Check out the samples below:
