Kunzite, as long as you maintain your persecution mania and smell criticism of Pentax everywhere, you should not be surprised that your filter also drips enough false information to you. No one ever said in this forum "Pentax is bad", this conspiracy only lives in your mind.
Did you know that davidmanze is not active only on this forum? :p
In any case, a Nikon user trying to convince us that Pentax can't possibly design Pentax lenses is actually bashing.
The conspiracy, oh boy... that's in YOUR mind. There's no conspiracy here, no persecution, just a few non-Pentaxians posting nonsense about a brand they don't own.
And getting angry when they're called on it.
Odd, it only appears that you get angry, all the time.
Anyhow, I hope that a new Canon 50mm f1.4 replacement is not as heavy, nor as expensive as this Tokina.
You're a funny one... talking about me getting angry while trying to upset me by repeating the same lie.
Kunzite, you are getting your knickers in a twist again.......
.....I stated that I don't doubt it is a Pentax lens!........(this can count as being an official legal and binding statement)
You did? Really? Are you sure about that?
Yes, you wrote the words, but you also added a "but".
P.S. Yes, the Tokina is using the same Pentax-designed optics.
P.P.S. There's something on your '.' key.

Well, as you have just confirmed the Tokina has the same optical formula..........
............IMHO that begs a huge "but"..........not that Pentax didn't design the lens........ rather.......
What is Pentax doing giving away their latest and probably their best hard won design to Tokina?
A rather strange thing to be doing if their isn't some association or another between them, don't you think?
We have established that Pentax designed the lens a 100%...........so what's your take in where Tokina fits into all this?........
If Tokina actually sells a number of lenses, Pentax will at least make some money. With 2% marketshare, on their own that is hard.
