Anyone know if this lens was ever launched?. It was announced in Feb and was supposed to have been available in the NH summer....

I've been intrigued by this lens - Although their site says summer 2014 - A rep was quoted as saying it would more likely be Fall/Autumn, which in reality probably means early next year. Looks more like a cine lens to me, but if the price/IQ is right maybe it'll be a good fast/wide option to consider.

I was handling this lens on the Kowa stand at the British birdwatching fair at weekend. It was m4/3 mount and surprisingly heavy. The rep said it would cost around £700-£800
