Samsung can make lenses, even for Pentax

Look at proof here :

35-135 zoom lens for Pentax Film or Digital by Samsung - eBay (item 270438485319 end time Aug-17-09 03:19:00 PDT)

Quite cheap, and very rare :-)
Ricoh pin, of course.

This lens looks very much like my Sears 60-300mm. Same ring textures, same fonts, made in Korea, everything. My lens was actually made by Samyang. Samyang still makes lenses for different distributors with different names. I think that this Samsung lens is actually a Samyang made lens with a Samsung nameplate.

Can't say anything about that lens but I have to say the seller should have used bigger text size - it's almost unreadable as it is...

Probably not developed and built by Samsung just like their Pentax lenses now.
