Re: Some things to consider...

DXO Mark has just released Samyang 24mm 1.4 Nikon mount review:

In terms of sharpness; on D610, it performs better than the Nikkor version but a tad worse than the Zeiss f/2. Even though you are not going to use it on D800, it performs much better on the said camera while the Nikkor version performs the same but still a tad worse than the Zeiss f/2.

So, considering you are not shallow DoF, at 24mm with smaller apertures your subjects would most likely be in focus. Therefore you may buy this lens despite not having AF.
