I think every camera manufacturer sells re-badged lenses under their own name, including Pentax. The DA 18-270 is a Tamron as was the previous 18-250. Some slight differences but essentially the same. There are a lot of sub-contractors in this industry. A lot of P&S and bridge cameras appear suspiciously similar too.
