35mm with Sony FE

So I have been struggling with which 35mm lens to buy. My choices were:

  • Sony FE 35mm f2.8 ZA
  • Tamron 35mm F2.8
  • Samyang 35mm F2.8

So after reading many reviews and YouTube videos I bought a the Tamron because it fit my budget the best and dpreview convinced me from the review that was done end of last year. I love the lens and the pictures that are coming out of it. They are super sharp and I like the ability to have 1:2 macro. Below is an example of a pic I took today.

I am now confused again because, Samyang just announced the 35mm f1.8 to compete with the sony 35mm 1.8. The Samyang is in my budget and I am wondering if i should return the Tamron and buy the Samyang. What do you guys think?
