'm trying to decide between the Samyang 14mm and the Tokina 11-16mm. I'm looking at these lenses because I need a very wide angle budget option with a wide aperture (and Canon's wides aren't exactly budget-friendly). I've seen a review for each of these lenses, and the main issues with each are:
The Samyang has issues with distortion and vignetting. Also, not to sound like a cliché youtuber, but its bokeh isn't great.
The Tokina has issues with soft and blurry corners and sometimes heavy chromatic aberration.
I'm leaning more toward the tokina but am worried that the problems with sharpness will render it unusable for a professional shoot, both for photography and videography.
Note: I am an amateur photographer/videographer who is just getting into paid jobs. I might be able to get away with these issues, since I will not have any high-end gigs for a while. Still, I want the footage coming out usable ☺
