I've considered the 16-50 as well, but the focal range overlaps with the kit lens. Is the Samyang 14 a fisheye?

16 mm is noticeably wider than the 18 mm of the kitlens. It would make the kitlens superfluous indeed.

Samyang 14mm is not a fisheye.
Very sharp, but strong distortion makes it less suitable for architecture :-(.
A sony lens supported by A57's lens correction may be wiser.
