Samsung D-Xenon 1:4 12-24mm lens

Can anyone tell me how good is this lens? is this the same as the pentax da version? can this be used on my k10d?

I'm not familiar with this particular lens, but I've read that the Xenon lenses are the same as the Pentax DA lenses, so I'd imagine this would be the case here.

The DA 12-24 seems to be highly regarded. Is there a price difference between the two versions?

The different versions are considered similar enough to be considered the same under DXO (as well as all the other "Samsung" lenses) that should speak for itself.

It's a re-badged Pentax 12-24 so a good lens
