Which wide - for city and startrails

I'm trying to decide which WA lens go for

I think I've narrowed it down to the Samyang 14mm or Pentax 15mm

I'd like to be able to shoot city, landscape and startrails

At the moment it feels like most things point to the Samyang 14mm... at least ~ 150 less, faster and FF compatible (I have a K7 at the moment though)

I don't feel the need for a zoom as I've become used to using my 35mm FA f2.0 quite a lot, rather than the 18-55mm wr... infact its this lens that is always on the body, but I need something wider

The samyang is a fine lens as long as you don't mind a little barrel distortion. But neither is wide enough for European cities. I use a sigma 10-20 quite a bit
