Pentax 3D Lens ?

Hi there!

I just wanted to ask, if anyone heard of plans by Pentax to produce some sort of a 3D lens.. like for the Lumix GH2 ? This would be awesome..

And, I know that the distance between both "eyes/lenses" is most important for the depth-effect, also probably a different algorithm for processing the 3D images in camera would be needed, so I am not sure if it would be possible at all.. But I would say, the market is there!

What do you guys think?

The 3d lens is pretty neat, but Pentax doesn't have the product integration that Panasonic has - by that I mean, Panny has the 3d lens, and the 3d TVs to put that lens to use. Since there isn't a clear 3d standard across brands on the TV side, I don't think it would make much sense for Pentax to offer such a lens.

With the right software to post-process the image, you could probably use the old Pentax Stereo Adapter on a modern DSLR.
