Interesting, looks like it's for crop sensors only though.Yeah, they technically announced the lens a year and a half ago, but they clearly had issues with production: http://www.canonrumors.com/2012/09/photokina-2012-samyang-10mm-f2-8-for-aps-c/
The 10mm will be a nice competitor with the Tokina at that focal length and f-stop. If it comes in below $400 US, it'd be a strong option. Also makes a good compliment with the 16mm f/2 they have for APS-C. The 50mm will be the interesting one. It has to be cheaper than the $300 that the Canon/Nikon 50mm cost, and yet it still has to be really good, because Sigma is about to drop a really great 50mm apparently (though obviously at a higher price).
I think the AF lens is a mistake for them. They probably do really good business with their cine lenses, they should stick with being a cheaper Zeiss-style brand
