Some thoughts

Compared to competition Samyang AF 14mm f/2.8 FE is a very affordable lens. It is also compact size despite having integrated, non removable hood. Autofocusing is quiet and fast, but not the most reliable especially in low light. The focusing ring has next to no resistance, which might make it hard for accurate manual focusing. Center of the frame is already sharp wide open, but the corners not so unless stopped down a little. Distortions are well controlled for such a wide-angle lens.
