Samsung D-Xenon Schneider lenses

How good are the Samsung D-Xenon Schneider lenses? How are they compared to Pentax and third party manufacturers? Where are they made?

They are just rebranded pentax lenses, such as the FA 35, DA 12-24, DA 18-55, and DA 50-200 all of which you can read about here:

They are exactly the same as the Pentax lenses, just branded differently.

I have a Samsung branded FA35 which is one of my favorites, sharp as a tack.

I've got the Samsung version of the D-FA 100mm macro (non-WR) and it's currently seeing a lot of use...

Same here, Samer as the Pentax except for the printing on the lens and the rubber grip. Oh and it was 100 cheaper!
