    And of course, RiceHigh's got some photos:

    And a "Top Secret" K-01 only lens, making full use of that "bulk" where the mirror used to be! OMG clever innit:



    I for one am interested in that 50mm 1.8 that looks very similar to the Plastic Fantastic 35mm 2.4! Also that K to Q mount, looks very interesting, what with the crop factor!

    Gonna wait for the Pentax 50. One thing though, can Pentax match Canon's Php5,000/ Nikon's Php 6,000 50 1.8s in terms of pricing?

    I'm crossing my fingers AND my toes for that to happen. Can't afford a FA 50mm 1.4 at the moment, and a DA 50mm 1.8 would be more than enough to smash that BUTTERY BOKEH BARRIER!

    Although if it has a few more (rounded) blades, I'll be happy with it being a *bit* pricier. Not more than the 35mm 2.4 though!

    Indeed! Around 10k? Why not, if it'll kick hard on the other 50 1.8's!

    as for the XS lens... yeah, that empty mirror box can be used for a lot of other stuff inward-focusing parts? Sounds nice!
