Given the Pentax penchant for `odd' focal lengths - how about a DA 27 ltd ?

There's definitely room for at least one more lens between 21 and 31 mm in the Pentax lineup. Maybe a DFA 24/1.8 ltd and a tiny DA 28/2.8 ltd? Yeah, sounds about right.
If they'd build a 26-28mm f/2.8 (2.4?) Limited with characteristics similar to the DA40/70 ((edge) sharpness wide open, low distortion, FF-coverage), I'd buy it immediately.
I've been holding out on the DA21 while searching for a reasonable deal on a FA20 because of edge performance, distortion and the lack of FF-coverage.
26-28mm on APS-C would replicate the 40-43mm FOV and 26/40/70 would make a nice trio on APS-C as well as 35mm.

Entire hell will freeze over before Pentax issues DA24.
And high mountains of hell will see the snow before we see DA28.
At the entrance in the Pentax land, there stands is a sign, "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here".

But seriously, Pentax will never listen to what you want, and make exactly that. They will listen, maybe, and then do something entirely else, but in their mind it registers as a customer support.

This is so true. I think no on eexpected the DA 15 and DFAWR 100 but these are now two of pentax's best lens
