I also have the Rokinon (same as Samyang) and find it a superb lens optically.  It is also very well built.  I like having an f2.0 lens for interiors.  As far as AF I see no need for it at this FL.  It is not a problem focusing manually and once you get to f4 or so you can almost set it and forget it unless you are focusing on something quite close.

It's hard to imagine that the Touit would give any advantage, and I have the Touit 32.

My advice save your money and with the difference buy another lens, or maybe something for your wife, if you are married.  That would do more to help your photography than anything else.
