FYI, ETA is May and $600 for the new /3.5 model from a post I saw.
I could not find the post or any mention of ETA on the web. Where did you see this?

Any new thoughts on the new lens? I had heard August for the pentax version by now cannot find any sources to confirm it.

Not every wide angle lense is used for landscape photography. Those who can get creative... will.

Fully agreed, landscapes and interiors of homes aren't the only uses for an Ultra Wide. Here's an example:

DA14/2.8 at F2.8 and minimum focus distance:



This also wasn't taken at F11! DA14 again:



This new sigma is a very interesting lens, and if Pentax fails to release the much anticipated DA*11-16/2.8, this Sigma is the lens I will get.

For those who are interested, French magazine Reponse Photo made a test of this lans on Nikon mount this month and were very pleased.

The zoom is very good at 10mm starting at F4, and much weaker at 20mm, but overall very good quality for the price.
