Has anyone ever head-to-head'ed these? Specifically, the Samyang against any of the others.

Obviously, it doesn't have AF (or auto-aperture) and needs a chip even for focus-confirm. But assuming you can work within those parameters... how's the optics, the final IQ?

The reviews appear to imply that (amazingly) it does stand in those hallowed ranks, IQ-wise...
