I think its a testament to the EF lens lineup (largely from Cann, but also a little Sigma/Tamron) that Samyang is going 14mm f/2.8 as their first AF lens.

35mm f/2.8, 35mm f/1.4, and 50mm f/1.4 are also lenses that they do in FE mount autofocus, but, they know they cant compete price wise with Canon in those sectors. Or beat out Sigma's reputation on the 35mm.

They've got a few lenses they do in APS-C (12mm f/2, 21mm f/1.4) that might be interesting EF-S lenses if they wanted to push Canon and Sigma
What do you mean "first AF lens" when there exist several AF lenses from them already (for FE mount)? Anyway, Samyang came out with a FE 14mm f/2.8 AF lens for Sony E mount back in 2016:

The OP lists it as first for EF, not FE
EOS 5D3, EOS M5 and no room left in the 1510.

Hi there!  Newbie here! (Just though I'd better let you know, as I'm feeling my way around the forum!)
Although I love mine, having an AF does interest me.  But what would make me more excited is to NOT have a bulbous front end.  Oh how I wish I could stick my Lee Filter System on it!!
