Any experience with Samyang lenses: 35mm f/1.4, 24mm f/1.8, 14mm f/2.8? Non-L Canon?

These are inexpensive lenses reviewed by many as being acceptable (24mm) or good (35mm, 14mm (nature only due to mustache).

Also, has anyone used non-L Canon WA prime lenses for astrophotography?

I would like to try astrolandscapes but don't have in mind plunking down $1700.00 for the Canon 35mm f/1.4L.

My camera is an APS-C Canon, 60D.
