Very good real world review, especially given the detailed info on the lens's field of curvature which causes a little "mayhem" at the longer focal lengths, most reviews mention nothing of that genre.
I'm not sure if a compromise setting, (putting the focus point at the 1/1/3rd of the way from the frame edge) would help ease the corner/ edge situation, probably?
Huge lens though and heavy at 1.15 Kgs....this is a lens you can get round by using two lighter primes or a prime and a zoom, there's the Samyang 14mm F2.8, (one stop brighter for peanuts for example)
On a trip this lens would be a pain to carry coupled added to your standard kit!
