Tokina? Not at all. It is Pentax optical design.. No star lenses in Pentax line-up designed by other OEM. 
The 15-30/2,8 is Tamron design, 24-70 - as well. No star on the barrel, but 70-200 is Star lens, designed by Pentax/Ricoh.
New HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm F1.4 SDM AW is designed by Pentax/Ricoh. The optical formula is shared to Tokina to use in Opera 50/1,4 with Canon and Nikon mounts. But Opera 50/1,4 has it's own coatings, not the same as Pentax-D FA* 50mm F1.4

I see dead peopl  jealous non-Pentaxians... they don't know they're jealous but they're showing it with every post.

Yes, the D FA* is fantastic. It's so good that it actually helps me get over this Photokina's disappointment.
It also helps that unlike other brands' - which I won't name to avoid a brand dispute - top RF and Z 50mm-ish, this Pentax D FA* makes a lot of sense.
But don't worry; you can get the Tokina.
