So it's not so cheap like a Samyang, we have to see it more like a Sigma Art or Tokina qualitywise glass, but manual :)
There is some CA on the left picture of the building I noticed.

samyang doesnt have coma and plenty sharp. I'de rather deal with samyang's distortion correction than a lens with batwing lights.
