If I was to spend $2000+ for a lens, it better be perfect, capable of satisfying the worst "pixel peeper" (and I am not the only one.. there are worse around). Especially if the object of the photo are stars. Sharpness (resolution, contrast) is the essential property of the lens..
Some cheap Zenit M42 lenses ( $100 or a bit more) are sharper than many modern, much more expensive lenses today, BTW.
