In reply to:

glanglois: Poor me - love to have this but I shoot Pentax for a variety of other reasons.

I cannot speak for others but this would allow me to shoot interiors of churches/cathedrals/museums stopped down to f/4 for sharpness or left at 2.8 if the interior is very dim. Many of these venues do not welcome tripods but have breathtaking wood carving and/or gilding that would greatly benefit from this.

Sigh ....

Actually, Tokina and Pentax co-design many lenses. I think their arrangement may preclude Tokina from offering Pentax mount lenses. But this is speculation on my part from the numerous examples of Tokina/Pentax lenses where Tokina does not market a Pentax mount version. I still hope to see a Pentax DA badged version of this design at some point.
