The email I received is what I posted, I only changed the SOS (Sales Operations Supervisor) name to initials. I noticed the typo as well.

I assume/hope delivery will be next week (week of June 23, 2014) to B&H, Adorama, etc.

We are getting enough to fulfill all backorders we have in our system. So if you haven’t placed a backorder at a dealer or our website yet, please do so soon to ensure that you receive it before supplies run out.

I contacted Sigma USA again regarding the 18-35mm in K mount, here was their response:

Good afternoon,

Unfortunately the 18-35 has yet to be released in Sony and Pentax mounts. Our parent company continues to push it back. I do know for sure that they are in production, but I am assuming they're running into production issues. I am very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Today, I contacted Sigma USA regarding the 18-35mm f/1.8 lens for Pentax mounts. They responded quickly, so I guess they are listening.

Good afternoon,

Unfortunately the 18-35 has yet to be released in Sony and Pentax mounts. We are currently expecting an early May delivery. I am very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Can this be fixed?

I contacted Sigma USA today, via their web site, regarding the Pentax version of the 18-35mm. It should hit B&H and/or Adorama by the end of Feb:

Hello Robert,

We have been informed the lens should ship by the end of February.

Item for Sale
Voigtlander 125mm f/2.5 Macro APO Lanther SL

Asking Price
2,100.00 USD

Item Location
Oregon (United States)

Item Description
Voigtlander 125mm f/2.5 APO Macro for sale. Very rarely do these come up for sale. A remarkable macro lens, and known for it's superb bokeh and great resolution. There is an "A" setting on the aperture ring, so it will work with any of the PASM modes on Pentax bodies.

Includes:

- Original box, metal hood and rubber hood cap, and screw on Voigtlander from lens cap.
- Nikon 58mm pinch lens cap, rear end cap.
- Beta Shell lens case.
- B&W 58mm MRC clear filter.

Blemish free front and rear lens elements. Inside the lens, there are 5-6 smaller dust particles, and 1 slightly larger dust particle. There is a small nick on the side of the lens, on the black barrel, silver focus ring and just to the right of the 0.43 marking on the lens - see pictures below. This is the only reason I would not describe this lens as in "excellent" condition.

*PETITION* Lets put an end to the crazy online Pentax lens prices in the US!
Posted By leadfoot

Let the online stores charge what they like for Pentax lenses. If they don't make a profit, they won't sell them. With the super high prices, they sit on the stores shelves collecting dust. And that is costing retailers big bucks, tied up in inventory that won't move.

Pentax's wildly fluctuating lens prices is hurting both Pentax and the online retailers. No one will consider switching to Pentax when they don't know what lens prices will be.

I have K10D, DA15LTD, DA40LTD I want a 3rd LTD lens DA70 or FA77 żany advice?

If you have the bucks for the FA 77mm Ltd, I'd recommend something a bit different.

Sell the 40mm Ltd, even though it's a gorgeous lens. Buy the plastic fantastic DA 35mm, a cheap lens, great optics. That will net you about $200. Then buy the 21mm Ltd, a perfect focal length, and the 70mm Ltd. You'll end up with the 15, 21, 70mm Ltd's and the 35mm. A perfect line up of Pentax Primes!

Sure the 77mm Ltd is superb. The 15mm is a specialty lens, as it's so wide, and the 40mm is kind of a weird focal length, at least for me. The 21mm is the classic wide angle, my go to lens...
