Yes, very nice start indeed from a prestigious lens maker.

I am not so sure this is a "native m4/3 lens" since they are discussing the possibility to issue a Sony E version of it. Besides, such a big lens including 10 elements looks more like the design of a super-wide angle for APS-C sensors than a wide angle for µ4/3 sensors.

Wonder if there will ever be any Schneider lens for the PK mount. If not then I'm going to have a genuine need for yet another new camera body

Schneider Kreuznach has said it will begin making lenses for mirrorless systems, and has shown renderings of a 14mm F2.0 lens for the Micro Four Thirds system. The move will make Schneider one of the few independent lens makers building autofocus lenses for mirrorless systems, following the launches of lenses for Micro Four Thirds and Sony NEX from Sigma and a NEX 18-200mm from Tamron. As part of its annual review, Schneider says it will introduce a range of lenses for mirrorless cameras 'this fall,' which we're expecting to mean around the Photokina show in Cologne, this September.

Have they actually released it? I thought it was more of an announcement. I wonder if they'll include Samsung with the mirrorless mounts. Schneifer and Samsung worked together for a long time. On the other hand, not sure Samsung wants to have another lens manufacturer competing with them. I could see it going either way. I think this is more important for the Sony folks, Samsung lenses seem to have a pretty good reputation already.

It's native in the sense that it has the m4/3 mount vs. requiring an adapter. As a first dip into mirrorless lenses, having different designs for m4/3 and NEX probably isn't feasible cost wise.

Wider. Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiider. Needs to be wider. It's a good start, but it needs to be wider. Did I mention it needs to be wider?

I think you need the cv12 Bimjo. Besides you could have the cv12 and the cv35 1.2 for the price of this one.

Samyang announces 8mm f/2.8 fisheye lens for Sony NEX and Samsung NX cameras | Ubergizmo

Wide enough for you Bimjo? If it's anything like the Pentax version this will be a really nice lens indeed.

IMHO, another carry over from NEX just like the Sigma offerings.
There is the Panasonic 14/2.5 which is much smaller, far cheaper, decent optically and fast enough for a short focal length.

For wider FOV and better optics, there is the Oly 12/2
So this offering sits in an odd place.
Not to mention the MF WA options from Voigtlander (beautiful and small) and even the Pentax DA15ltd. (again cheaper)

The good thing is that I see Panny and Oly have their bases covered with nice options, so they deserve to make some money from lens sales for their systems.
Users have a pretty nice range to pick between them too.
