Is the FE 50 1.8 really that bad???

I have the Samyang 50 1.4 FE and I had the Canon 50 STM before. I generally shoot 50s in the F/2-2.8 range... the STM had disgusting LoCA; Samyang is OK optically from F/2 on and I'm finding I don't need F/1.4 at 50mm

Considering the 55 ZA but now that the dust has settled with firmware and the like what are people's thoughts on the FE 50 1.8 on an A7R2? I'm already used to VCR motor AF with the Samyang... I'm used to it; I don't even think about it. My main concern is performance between F/2 and F/2.8
