Wide angle for A7? (I know, I know)

Hey guys,

I know it's been asked a million times but I really want something wider for the A7 while I wait for the next Sony Zeiss FE to come out/get announced.

What about getting that 14mm Rokinon/Samyang f/2.8 lens for E-Mount? Anyone have any experience with it? For $399 it seems like a good bet. I just a have a few questions:

- If I don't use auto-crop, it will give me the big photo with the huge clear vignette, right?

- Will auto-focus work since it's a native E-Mount? This isn't all that important as I plan on using MF.

- Lastly, is there a better option than this lens?

This is the lens I'm talking about: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1018382-REG/samyang_sy14m_e_14mm_f_2_8_ed_as.html

Thanks guys!

(I currently have the Zeiss FE 35mm f/2.8 that I absolutely love, just need something a bit more wide angle.)
