Been pondering why Tokina hasnt made a 11-16mm f/2.8 for Pentax Mount?

I dont think Pentax is doing FF anytime soon and Canon, Nikon, Sony users already have this lens for quite a while.

Did Pentax stress upon Tokina not to make one for Pentax mount or did Tokina find that Pentax mount was too niche?

I take it i am not the first to ask this so what was the official summary if there was one?

I'm not sure but it surely paints a Hoya, Pentax and Tokina picture as stupid...

I'm currently contemplating 8-16mm, or 10-20mm from Sigma, apparently Hoya, Pentax & Tokina don't like to take my money, but want their rivals to have my money instead. (Good job fellas)

I was hoping Photokina would see it announced as a Pentax rebadge, but i won't be holding my breathe, I will be buying a Sigma.
