Samsung lenses compatible?

Hi All,

First time posting here and only a few months into my love affair with my K200d, and Im already hankering after a fish eye.

Ive taken a shine to the DA 10-17mm, however I've noticed you can get a Samsung D-Xenon 10-17mm which appears to be the same, in K mount for 100 less.

Are they the same lens? Is there any difference apart from the branding? And is the Samsung fully compatible with the K200d?

AFAIK, the modern K mount Samsung Kreuznach lenses are the same as Pentax branded, with the exception of the lens coating (for reflection reduction) possibly being different.

In some markets the Samsung branded ones are more expensive, while in others they can be cheaper.

Thanks for the advise, I took the plunge and just picked one up for 250 rather than 350 for the Pentax version. Looking forward to checking it out once it arrives...

That's a great price if it's new. Care to tell where you bought it from?

EDIT: the cheapest I find in euro-land is more than 600€
