I had ordered one of these from Buydig on 1/24/13 and it still shows as backordered (it was $225 there) but a price is only a deal if you actually get a lens

Curious about the long exposure capes on the K-r---Mr. Kiyasaka said he used a 60-second exposure. My K-7, if I remember my recent experiments in backyard astrophotography correctly, shut down before it reached 60 seconds. I still got some cool shots with my second-hand Pentax 10-17mm.

Yes, all the Samyang-made lenses are manual-focus only. It does have 'A' aperture mode for Pentax bodies, allowing you to use Av mode. The same 8mm/3.5 lens is badged as Bower, Rokinon, Vivitar (although they call it a 7mm), Polar, and Walimex.
