Could be. But what I find weird, is that it's a 1.5 year old article. Kinda random post.

Not really, in the light of several recent threads in this forum.

This is a better design than the Sigma 10-20 either version, in that wide open, and at the edges throughout the range, it is sharper; and it's wider than the 12-24. I have owned and used both. 2mm at the short end is a significant difference in a W/A. And it takes filters of a reasonably moderate size. Nobody seems to be that wild about the Tokina.

It's got to be good to make me think seriously about a Sony cam!

Incidentally I was using 'copy' in a subtle sense, but Pentax has more literally copied/adopted lenses more than once in its long history.
