Samsung just made a 85mm f1.4 lens...

Samsung: CES 2011 Show Report: Digital Photography Review

Hopefully it's made for Pentax...

I wonder if it's not a rebranded version of the new Sigma 85mm f1.4. That new Sigma is hot, and hopefully it will be my next lens purchase.

it looks like the lens has the SSA(some kind of silent focusing), and the iFn button...

I am thinking about getting the Sigma 85/1.4 for my Nikon setup though... but I might have to wait, I might pick up the Samsung one for my K-5

This is NX mount - it will not fit a K-mount camera without the K->NX adapter, which I think lacks AF. I picked up a Samsung NX10 the other day & was surprised at how good the build quality is. Despite the small size itīs pretty good in the hand too. Samsung seem to be the only one of the mirrorless camera manufacturers that are actually trying to make genuinely useful lenses for their system. The 84mm 1.4 is an excellent choice and I doubt itīs a Sigma re-brand as the Sigma is full frame & would be unnecessarily large to use on a cropped-sensor camera.

If I went mirrorless just now, it would have to be Samsung, despite the faults.
