Samyang is two stops faster

Let's say you don't have a wide angle lens for your NX camera. Would you get the Samsung 12-24mm F4-5.6 or the Samyang (Rokinon) 12mm F2, and why?

and I shoot most of the time at 12mm anyway, as I suspect do most people. I have the 12-24, but I see the benefits of the Samyang. If it was an AF lens, I would get it in a heartbeat, but MF is quite manageable for such a wideangle lens.

So, if I didn't have the 12-24, I would probably get the 12mm f/2. However, the 12-24 is a very good and compact lens, there is nothing wrong with it as such.
