Calling out users of the Samyang and/or Rokinon 135mm f/2 lens

I was wondering if anyone knew what exactly are the differences between these two lenses. I understand that Samyang lends its designs to other companies, primarily Rokinon. However, there is a $100 price difference between the two. I am very skeptical that the Rokinon would be exactly the same in optical quality for such a huge difference in price, 20% less. I hope I am wrong because I do wish to save myself the $100. However, if the Samyang is superior in optical quality, I will dish the extra $100.

thank you all ahead of time
