Another delay for the HD 70-200 f2.8?

Received this from the store where I ordered the lens:

Je dois vous informer aujourd’hui d’un retard important quant à la livraison de l’objectif Pentax 70-200mm F2.8 que vous avez commandé.

Le fournisseur aurait annoncé le produit trop tôt, donc personne n’en aura en Amérique avant le mois d’avril.

I have to inform you today of a significant delay on the delivery of the Pentax 70-200mm F2.8 lens you ordered.
The supplier has announced the product too early, so nobody will be in America before April.

April is a reasonable time for K-1 and 70-200 2.8 arrival..

Tom - not kidding. It was announced by Pentax that the lens will be available in April.

Just that we have been waiting for so long it.

Maybe the expected availability date of February 25 2016 on the B&H website is misleading.

So look like the FF and the 20-200mm will be available at the same time.

Cheers
