According to the Modern tests, the Vivitar/Phoenix/etc. 19-35/3.5-4.5 has half the barrel distortion at 19mm as the Samyang at 18mm, still significant, but much less. The 19-35 is also quite sharp at the wide end in their test. I've found it to be quite a nice lens.

Thanx, Jim, as well as the other members who have responded here or directly... now have a couple of good leads. FWIW, I have a Samyang 18~28 (actually two of them, one broken and one almost new) but am not really happy with them at the very short end of the range. I'm sort of guessing that I really want a Tamron or Tokina 17mm, but hope to hold off the cost of same by playing with something cheaper... possibly a bad way to go, I understand!
