Anyone has experience with Samsung 12-24/4 lens?

I am looking for a ultra wide zoom lens. I could find a deal about $550 for a brand new samsung 12-24/4. Just wondering how it compares to pentax SMC version.
I have heard both of them are as same formula of glasses while a little different of coating.
Need some more input if anyone have experience with this lens.
Thanks!

I have this lens. Some of my friends compared it to the Pentax version and said that the coatings are one and the same. The difference is purely cosmetic.

Is that a one-off deal? New or used? Or can any of the rest of us get in on $550 for a 12-24?
