Re: It is *not* the same lens

That's good to know. It just seemed wrong that Pentax, who has made some legendary glass in all these years, would license a lens from Olympus. Thanks for the info.

To be fair to Olympus, they've also made some pretty good glass over the years.

There is no doubt about that. But just as I wouldn't expect Nikon to license a lens from Canon, it would be kind of weird for Pentax to license a lens from Olympus. For some reason, it doesn't seem wrong when Pentax rebrands a Tokina lens like the 12-24 f4 or 10-17 Fisheye zoom, but rebrand a lens from a (sort of) competitor like Olympus just feels wrong, IMHO.

I don't have any feelings about the right or wrong of it, but agree that it most likely wouldn't happen.  Just was pointing out that like Pentax, Olympus has produced some stellar glass.
