Samyang 10mm soon

Samyang 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS Lens - Samyang UK

Looks like the Pentax mount is going to be available in concert with the others, not later on. That's pretty exciting news. Almost as exciting as this lens being available in as little as a few weeks.

That looks really nice. And not too expensive either!

This lens still seems like vaporware that hasn't totally condensed yet.
The B&H page says 14 elements in 9 groups, but the Samyang video says 10 groups.

The only "architecture" that the video shows is ancient Greek style,
so we can't see how the barrel distortion compares with the 14mm.

Finally, the homeland Samyang site (right there in Gangnam) still has no mention of the lens:

Partially why you're reading about this on a "Rumors" board.

That lens would complete my set (yea right )...
This is a lens that would need PTLens or for someone to do a profile for Lightroom
