I've narrowed down my choices for a 35mm lens to use for street work with the A7iv I've got on order. Does anyone have an opinion why I should get the Sony over the Samyang?

Now you are making me review images again.

They are more similar than different. The Sony has the advantage as far as focusing and just working better. Also slightly better contrast. The Samyang has less corner shading stopped down and less lateral CA. It might be a bit better for landscapes, but it doesn't hold up against the Tamron 35mm F2.8 for that.

I just picked up a Samyang AF 35mm F1.4 too.

Can you say few words about your experience with Samyang AF 35mm F1.4? I have one, but I see that (almost) nobody even mentions in in the battle of various 35mm, including 35 1.4 by Sigma (more expensive) and Sony (even more expensive). I do not use it often (like short or longer FL), but when I use it, it sometimes pleasantly surprises me.
