Samsung Schneider-Kreuznach lenses?

Does anyone know anything about these lenses? Are they fully compatible with Pentax digital cameras? They look almost identical to corresponding Pentax lenses, are they actually made by Pentax?

I own a Samsung D-Xeon 12-24mm f4 lens. It is identical to it's Pentax brother the DA 12-24 and completely compatible with my Pentax cameras. The only thing that I've found that isn't compatible is that the image processing software, whether it's Pentax's photo browser or Lightroom doesn't know what it is exactly, i.e., the lens data in the exif file has a blank in it. Otherwise use in good health. I love mine and wouldn't hesitate to buy another. I've got my eye on the D-XENOGON 35mm lens.

When you say that data is not showing in the EXIF info, do you mean that it is not just showing the lens model, or is the data blank for all other picture informations as well?
Thanks,

I don't know about the EXIF data, but these lenses are identical to their Pentax counterparts.

These are the same as DA lenses, just with different branding and zoom ring finishes.

What I meant was that the exif data does not tell what kind of lens it is, all other parameters do show in the exif data. This apparently isn't the camera or lens fault. It's apparently the software's fault.
