There were two pieces locked up in a display case in Pentax Forum in Tokyo last week... unfortunately I forgot if there was a release date indicated on the label.

Good News for those who are interested in this lens! I wish it could be a little smaller. :-(

That is around $2.4k. Is that list price? When the 300f4 was 1st released, it cost $2k. So I guess that price is kind of expected. It will drop a little after half a year or so.

Good news is that it is about the same weight as the 300f4, because that is the heaviest I can handhold for an extended period of time.

Looks like Pentax have started shipping the lens. It is available in UK for £799.00. That's about US$1200?

Bro, that's like SG$1800...not too bad for a weathersealed zoom in that FL/aperture range.
Canon 70-200 f/4 L IS USM is about SG$1900 in CP these days.
Only the performance remains to be seen now, and the reliability of the SDM.

I really hope this lens delivers!.
