I do not (yet) have this lens, but I see it is in the open source "lensfun" database. That means some open source software like the Gimp should be able to correct for it.  Here is its profile:

<lens>
<maker>Samyang</maker>
<model>Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC</model>
<mount>Canon EF</mount>
<cropfactor>1.0</cropfactor>
<calibration>
<distortion model="ptlens" focal="14" a="0.04015" b="-0.07043" c="-0.05466" />
<tca model="poly3" focal="14" br="0.0000198" vr="0.9999690" bb="-0.0001334" vb="1.0003226" />
</calibration>
</lens>

Anyway, I'm intrigued by this lens and will likely buy it at some point. Maybe soon, maybe next year. I suppose it will be a nice ultra-ultrawide complement to the new 16-35, which I plan to buy early next year.

If it's a *Single* Lens Reflex, why do I need so many lenses?
