I think so to. I'm wondering if they even red my email.
I mentioned Pentax in the subject and twice in the body.

Ugh, I really want this lens too. I'm thinking of maybe getting the 28-75mm, but I really want to go wider. Still no word on when the Pentax version will come out?

I haven't posted this myself because I hate to go by anything less than an official announcement, but various people in various forums (dpreview.com, photo.net) have been reporting that Tamron's customer support have been replying back to requests, saying that they're gonna announce the lens at a tradeshow at the end of this month (presumably PMA). Even for a little while, Tamron's Taiwan site was listing the Pentax version was coming soon.

I personally got an e-mail reply from them a week ago, saying that it's in the plans for the "future." This is in contrast to months ago, when I got a reply from them saying that they had no plans.

Even with all this, I don't like going by anything less than an official announcement. I would wait for at least PMA to see if they announce anything. And "announce" isn't the same time as "released." I'll wait, I would love this lens myself.
