Rokinon prices, and get the 12 f2 or 14 f2.8

I can never quite figure out how Rokinon and Samyang work. Besides, the obvious issue of why the same lens is sold under different brand names, in this case there seems to be a significant price difference (100 $) for the same lens -

This is 299 $

and this 399 $

So, what's going on here?

Also, I've been meaning to save up to get this lens for milky way and other night photography pics, but are there other inexpensive options I should look at?

e.g. Rokinon's own 14mm f/2.8  ??

Thanks!
