In this case it's just my own stupidity. I know I'm UTC -6 right now. Just did the simple arithmetic wrong.

I guess this means the announcement is at 8am Tokyo time.

No, they did not. They announced that, by mistake, some Q Silver Limited had been shipped with firmware V 1.0 instead of 1.01 and they explained how this could be corrected (by updating the firmware / bringing the camera to a Pentax service centre / sending the camera back to Pentax for free of charge update).

Official press release for the 25mm f4: PENTAX - PENTAX Introduces New 25mm f/4 Lens Designed Exclusively For Company's 645D Medium-Format Digital SLR Camera

Was this lens not already out? Am I mis-remembering the last ~6 months of my life?

I presume it was announced but not out / available.

By the way, I just discovered that it's a DA, not a DFA, thus meaning that it cannot be used on a film 645.

When it was first announced on 7 February 2011, its name was PENTAX-DFA 645 1:4 25mm



Today its name is PENTAX-DA 645 1:4 25mm

Are you sure? All the specs indicate otherwise.
