    Hey folks,
    How are you? I'm new to MFT world and I'm interested in astrophotography shooting
    and i need your help to choose between 2 lenses

    * PANASONIC LUMIX G II Lens, 14mm, F2.5 ASPH

    * Rokinon Cine DS DS14M-MFT 14mm T3.1

    thank you

    A faster lens would be a better choice really. If you're set on those two the one with better coma performance would be the one to choose; lenstip is the only place that really comments on that in reviews... see:
    Panasonic G 14 mm f/2.5 ASPH. review - Coma and astigmatism - LensTip.com
    The Panasonic does well in that regard, I have no idea about the Rokinon.

    I maintain a list of lenses compared in a standard way if you're interested, but it only contains lenses f/2.0 or faster. See:
    m4/3 lens comparison

    I'd go for the Samyang 12mm f/2 as well.
