But it is not the sentence in question. That sentence was "And if you

Where are the qualifiers there? Sounds pretty straightforward and
certain to me. The sentence with the qualifiers was an example I gave of
what I might have said, as opposed to the above quote, had I only
suspected a lens might be in the offing, and thus, appropriately,

"S" as in super - super wide angle. A common enough usage, but I should
clearly have been more detailed and specific - at least for you.

I didn't say "there's an announcement coming of new 14 mm prime to come
some time, probably some considerable time, after said announcement." I
said it's coming and has a price.

Which is exactly what I was commenting was an irrelevant and unnecessary
thing to do. I foolishly assumed that the forthcoming existence of the
lens is what would be of interest to someone as regards WA lenses for
the FF Cs, whereas an announcement of the announcement that it would be
forthcoming might, understandably, be of less interest once the coming
of the lens was already known.

Pshaw! I spit on your grades. (and, as usual, disagree ;-) )
