The "best" zoom lens, for landscape and starscape, would be the DA* 11-18. A much more affordable alternative is the Sigma 10-20 F3.5. When it comes to starscape, the latter is my best lens (I don't have the former, too costly for me).

DA 15 is a very good choice (and light) for landscape, but I do not know how it performs when it comes to starscape.
