Re: Samyang 35/1.8 vs Sony 35/1.8

The Sony can probably reach faster AF & shooting speeds (at least with the right cameras) and might have slightly better build quality.

A good sample of the Samyang is probably optically a bit better (ca, bokeh, microcontrast). The switchable focus ring can be useful as a diaphragm ring. It's also a little lighter.

I chose the Samyang, not just to save money, and am very satisfied with it (long time Leica & Zeiss 35mm shooter - I got rid of my 35mm Loxia after getting the Samyang).
