Sharpest UWA (might be MF; maybe Rokinon/Samyang) for A7m2 ??

Hello forum!

I am looking for budget good optical quality, sharp, wide angle or ultra wide angle with focal length upto 24 mm (but not fish-eye !) prime lens. Could be manual and usedand might be from cheaper manufactures (China, Korea, etc.). Not Zeiss or Voigtlander this time

I made small research on Ebay, and found interesting this three lenses:

Samyang (Rokinon) 14 mm / F2.8

Samyang (Rokinon) 16 mm / F2.0

Samyang (Rokinon) 21 mm / F1.4

All three are manual. I dont't consider 8mm, 10mm,  12mm as they are fish-eye <?>.

There is also brand new Samyang (Rokinon) 18 mm / F2.8 <?> with AF.

I consider lens upto ~ $350 (used).

Which is best optically (low distortion and high sharpness, good contrast, etc.)?? What do you recommend?

I need it for A7 II and I shot mainly cars (outdoor, daytime) and sometimes some landscapes.

Thanks for your recommendations!
