Given that the DA12-24/4 was basically a rebadged Tokina 12-24, I wouldn't be surprised at all if that was the case.

That's not really accurate. I mean, yes, they share the same optical design, but the above makes it sound like Tokina did all the design work then Pentax just licensed it, when it it is at least as likely that it was an actual joint design effort.

You're right, I oversimplified things.
