It's up to you now, Pentax

We all know how unobtrusive PentaxUSA lazy marketing used to be. There are definitely some potentials for the lens here times by aggravated curiosity.

However, due to steep price tag and unavailability of the floor samples people want to see test results first before jumping into $7K joy. If I were in Pentax upper management team, I would supply a few 560/5.6 samples to major trustworthy independent testing sites to generate a feedback and promote the lens (let's assume they have no doubts it's a good lens).

Me: On top of 7K I have to pay now 9.75% California Sell Tax, implied recently on all Internet purchases by our broken state. Almost $8K with not knowing what you are buying bites! If there is no news about the lens soon, I most likely buy Sigma 500/4.5.
