This is the Meike 35mm f/0.95 is a manual focus APS-C lens available for all kinds of camera mounts. 

The current retail price is $160. It is a solid metal construction. The Aperture ring is step-less, the focus ring goes very smooth. The image quality wide open is usable, if you're ready to attack chromatic aberrations in post. I found the best image quality to be at f2.8

This is the Yongnuo 11mm f/1.8 - an APS-C super wide angle lens for Sony e-mount. 

It is impressive for many reasons: the current retail price of $295 being one of them. It is a feature packed lens with programmable buttons that you could even operate with a remote control. 

Pros: good sharpness and low distortions  Cons: Chromatic Aberrations

The Sigma 23mmf/1.4 APS-C lens is the full frame equivalent to 34.5mm, and therefore usable in so many kind of creations: from street photography, landscape to portrait, everything is possible. 

It is a solid build, metal body with 13 elements in 10 groups, the filter size is 52mm.

Already wide open it offers an amazing sharpness. The focus is spot on, in photo and video mode. The pros outweigh the few weaknesses by far. We have great colors and contrast, it lines up well with the successful SIGMA Trio and therefore comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

The TTArtisan 50mm f/1.2 lens offers a focal length equivalent to 75mm on a full frame camera, ideal for portrait shoots. With it's fas aperture of f/1.2 it is a low light king. Already wide open it offers good center sharpness. On top it creates an amazing bokeh. Weaknesses are corner sharpness, CA's and focus breathing. But for the money it is truly amazing

and therefore comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

With a large maximum aperture of F2, it allows for creative versatility in low-light conditions and beautiful bokeh.

The 7Artisans 18mm f/6.3 Mk II is the new version of the UFO lens. 

While the old version was a point and shoot, this model features a manual focus ring.
