If I am not wrong, Pentax DSLR will be manufactured by Samsung while Pentax take care of the development. Something like the Sony Ericsson tie-up...read from somewhere could be wrong info.

Yeah, but I still don't get it. Why not retain the pentax label for the lens? Is it a marketing ploy to temp buyers with the S-K label?

Yes it is exactly the same. Just a relabelled body.

Someone told me that Samsung has a shareholding in Schneider and/or owns some rights to the brand. That might have something to do with it.
