My unfounded theory

I'd just as soon have a fixed f5.6 superwide prime at 10mm, but ain't no one listening to me so far :^)

I think that it's not worth designing a 10mm DX prime. You need to be about 40mm from the sensor to clear the mirror, so any 10mm is going to be something like a 0.2X telescope in front of a 50mm imaging lens. Once you've got all that glass out there you might as well move some of it around and market it as a zoom.
