Not the same thing, quite, but I have the Bower 8mm fisheye (same as the Samyang) and I find the focus peaking to be relatively useless with the lens.  That's not a problem because with a lens this wide, focus is pretty much a non-problem.  My lens has built in f-stops, so the G lens fiddly f-stop adjustment situation is not a problem either.  You might find that you can just set the f-stop and pretty much forget it with such a wide lens anyway.
