input on the samyang 35 f/1.4 vs Tamron 35 f/1.8

Trying to quickly decide if to get the samyang 35 f/1.4 or the tamron 35 f/1.8 for a trip next week (so trying to order in the next 24 hours...

. Did read thru multiple threads, and read some reviews, just got me a bit more confused...

- to me it looks like the samyang isn't super sharp in the center at f1.4. Is that the consensus? does it get very sharp at f/1.8?

- Any idea how it performs vs the Tamron 35 f/1.8 on the mc-11? Especially eye-af

- any one tried any of them for astrophotography?

I'll be using it mainly wide open for portraits, and for astrophotography. I don't do any video, so noisy af is not an issue

Love to hear what you have to say.
