Looking at the board of Hoya and Tokina it looks like the same family runs both, but Hoya/Pentax is public and Tokina is private. They jointly own THK (Tokina, Hoya, Kenko). Pentax is still a new entity to the group and it might take awhile for Pentax to be fully integrated and deals to be worked out.
THK is American distributor of Tokina, Hoya and Kenko and nothing else.

Exclusive distributors of Tokina camera lenses, Hoya filters, and Kenko lens converters and video camera lenses in the US.

Not sure if this was discussed before. My searches gave unrevealing results.

So, Hoya has owned Pentax for a few years (2008?) and they have owned Tokina for 25+ years. My question is, why is support for Pentax mount so poor over at sister company Tokina?
