Everybody says so.

For the sake of completeness, though, it should be noted that Schreider Kreuznach insists that those lenses are made "under their responsibility" ... Maybe, they now introduce some designs of their own like Samsung introduced their own sensor. That would be good news!

FYI, here's the "official line" on S-K/Samsung DSLR lenses: Partnership Samsung Opto-Electronics GmbH - Jos. Schneider Optische Werke GmbH

Clearly, the line so far are rebadged Pentax (and soon, Tamron) lenses. Haven't seen anything that looks like Schneider-Kreuznach designs, but who knows what's down the road.

One question I have about the current Samsung lenses is, do they use Pentax SMC, or S-K's coating formulae? Anybody know?

I just love that marketspeek line:
GX digital SLR series were also developed in cooperation with Schneider-Kreuznach and meet the strict Schneider quality criteria.
Much ado about nothing........

Much ado about marketing, anyway. Still, I much prefer that product distinction be deeper than mere branding!
