I have firmly decided to continue waiting until either 12-24 comes back in stock or a new Pentax wide-angle zoom becomes available. There was a rumor about 12-35 WR zoom about a year ago. I considered Sigma 10-20 initially, but after using the [rented] 12-24 on a recent trip decided to not compromise.

Then a nice used copy of 12-24 came to the marketplace, and I snatched it. This is what I suggest - wait, and in the meantime look for used 12-24.
Yup. I missed it by about five minutes while I fiddled around thinking about a Sigma which was also up at the same time. When I got to it, you had it!

Even if they were to produce a Pentax version of the Tokina 11-16/2.8, it would not be a replacement for the 12-24/4, IMHO.

My apologies, John. I'm sure I will feel remorse when the 12-35mm WR will be announced.

Man! Pentax really is making us wait...been waiting for ages for the 12-24 and being veeeeery tempted by the DA 15 + DA 21....Come on Pentax! Role out some more stock or release the 12-35 please! Nearly 1.1k for the 12-24mm on ebay isn't reasonable at all....
