Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 pretty please

So I'm totally pumped to be sticking it out with Pentax and I love my K-5, but it does hurt a little reading the general lens news. Perhaps if I moan and groan a bit, Cosina will produce a K mount variant of the new Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95

Here's hoping!

Hate to break it to you, but that's a micro 4/3 lens, which has a different (shorter) register distance, so until Pentax also introduces a micro 4/3 body (or a similar mirrorless digital camera), such a lens would not function properly even if it was k-mount. (Also note that removing the mirror from a camera design does have it's drawbacks, as it currently means having to do contrast detect rather than phase detect AF, that is unless you're Fuji.)

Physical impossibility aside, Cosina-Voigtlander has stopped making Pentax mount lenses altogether

You can still pick up a Voigtlander Nokton 58/1.4 though--beauty lens, and much cheaper!
