As a nightscape and Milky Way Photographer, one of the top criteria I use when selecting lenses is to look at the shape of stars when shooting at wider apertures. Their shape is affected by several lens aberrations. And they are most apparent in the corner of the image. Coma is one of those aberrations. And you don't need any fancy gear to be testing lenses for coma.
