Samyang 14mm f2.8/t3.1 : edge issues ?

I just bought a Samyang 14mm t3.1 (f2.8) nikon mount  that I use on my 5D MK II with an adapter.

Things I noticed :

1. Infinity mark does not match infinity (lens goes "after" infinity). I thought it was the adapter but the issue is exactly the same with the lens mounted on m43 (with adapter too).

2. I noticed softness on the right side. See below (image OOC shot at T3.1) :

Left side is ok :

Right side is soft and full of distortion :

This happened on many pictures :

Note : These shots have been made at t3.1

Have you noticed this issue ? Is it expected for this kind of lens ?
