Re: 28-35mm Prime choice for A7C?

I've got a samyang 35mm 1.4. 
Love the lens. Super sharp, quick to focus and extremely accurate. Problem is, it took about 3 months to get it there. When I got it, the eye-af was all over the place. Only 3 out of 10 photos would actually focus on the eye. The rest would be between a little soft to no idea where it tried to focus.
Got the dock, made the firmware update to the latest, not much better. Send it in to be checked. First time took about a month to get it back and when I got it back it was better but still not great. 6/10 sharp. Sent it back again and then they changed something on the mechanical part of the lens. Again, another month waiting, but now it's as good as my sony 85 1.8.
So, at the end of the day, if you need your lens now, the sony may be a safer choice. If you have time and have a place that will let you test different samples, a samyang may be a better deal.
