The 14mm Samyang has the stars around the perimeter as small streaks and more condenced than the seagulls of the Canon lens. The series II of my Canon lens is better for CA, but don't know how much better it is for point like stars across the FOV. Hope that makes sense. All the best.
The MKII version of the Canon 24mm f1.4 lens is only a tiny margin better in this respect than the MKI. Still big seagulls in the corners at f1.4.. just slightly sharper seagulls than the MKI (still as wide, but not as thick/fat if that makes sense). This improves quickly with both lenses above f2 and nice tight stars across the frame at f2.8.
