Of course that is my opinion and that is why I chose to make the comment. And no, I don 't beat on my lenses. I still have many Nikon Lenses from the 70s and they still work just fine, but the 18mm 2.8 just struck me as wee bit too delicate for my taste and it had a couple of problems, which I mentioned in the post. If you like it, fine. I sent mine back to Samyang. And by the way, the 24 1.8 was not on sale when I purchased it. I like Samyang, they are experimenting, trying to find out what will sell and to whom, but not all of their products work for everyone and they are all not good products.

Could be said of every lens maker.
