How good is this lens? Do you need 1.8 for a 14mm? Maybe good for astro but other manual 14mm 2.8 is way cheaper.

Lens is very good and sharp. f/1.8 is 1.3 stops better than f/2.8. Depend on circumstances, a stop of light may make or break a shot if you're already maxed on ISO and aperture. Cheaper lenses will still typically lack the sharpness of this lens too.

People who buy this are buying it for a purpose. The average hobbyist doesn't need it. Still a good price for this specific product.

Man 14mm at f1.8, sigma is not far from making the prefect lens for me which would be 14-200 f2.8 Art. Haha

How does it perform on full frame cameras? Let's say 5D?

Compare MTF charts with other lenses you're considering, if you want raw data. Typically super wide, wide open, the image will have a vignette of softness with a sharp center. Usually having incredibly sharp images by the time you hit 2.8 or 4.0... Where you'd have to stop down a cheaper 2.8 lens to 5.6 or 8.
When they work right, the metabones adapters to a smaller sensor are phenomenal, because it crops the softest/distorted areas out (but also makes it a 20mm or so). Ehh, everything's always a tradeoff.
