last Weekend I went to my camera dealer here in Germany who organizes a little trade fair two times a year. At his mini trade fair some represantatives from Canon, Nikon, Hasselblad, Fuji, Sigma, Tamron, Manfrotto,... are present.
I asked the Sigma represantative if he knows something about availability and price.
He also could not say when the 14mm f1.8 lens will be available.

Probably still working out manufacturing details; like how to inexpensively manufacture that huge front element.

So it seems they announced it in advance merely to stop people from getting the Samyang 14mm 2.4 which is a real lens today!

Sigma basically announced their release schedule for the year.  To my knowledge the 14mm is actually the final of the four lenses announced.  Expect the 24-70 next.
6D x 2 | 80D | 70D | EOS-M3 w/22mm f/2 + 18-55 STM + 55-200 STM + Rokinon 12MM F/2 + EF Adapter| Tamron 15-30 VC | EF-S 24mm f/2.8 | Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC | 35mm f/2 IS | 40mm f/2.8 | Tamron 45mm VC | Zeiss 50 | 50 STM | 100L | 135L | Tamron 70-200 VC | 100-400L II | Legacy Glass

If I had not already had my copy of the Samyang, I wonder if I would have waited?  As it is, I really enjoy the Samyang.

I also bought the Rokinon 14mm F/2.4 instead of waiting for the Sigma. I'm very happy with its performance.

Yes. This is the dealer I meant.

I've been there as well. I hoped that maybe they had a test version of the 14mm with them and I also wanted to try some of their newer lens releases (85, 135).

I was pretty annoyed when the Sigma guy told me that almost all lenses they had with them were in Nikon mount -.-

But luckily there was also a lot of other interesting stuff to see and try :)

Although I have the Samyang 14mm 2.4, I will consider this lens if the coma is good and it comes in a Pentax K-1 mount.

I'm still waiting too. I was speaking to an agent. He's waiting to get a copy. He expects the coma to be good, he heard it would be.
