And, as long as Samyang had decided that the company was going to offer a 10mm lens - it just seems to me that should have been more of a priority than getting the 16mm out first.

Wasn't the 10mm cancelled?

Pretty sure the 10mm is on the way - very soon. In the UK, they are taking pre-orders for delivery starting by the end of this month - including for Pentax (Sigma, are you taking any notice of the footsteps inching closer?).
