Any info on DA* 50mm 1.4 or DA* 30mm?

A few weeks ago I spotted this pdf. file on pentax: http://www.pentax.jp/english/imaging/digital/lens/roadmap.pdf

In the "Future DA Lens" they have:
DA* 30mm
DA* 50mm 1.4

So are there any new information on these? Will they come this year?
I can't find anything

Sorry that I mistaked Film for Lens...

The DA* 50 is actually a 55, and no, as far as I know, no definite date on those yet.

I'm definitely interested in that 55. Perhaps among the announcements that Pentax will be making at Photokina will be a more definite release date for both the 30 and 55.

The talk is that the 55 is supposed to fill the gap in the lineup that the Pentax 85's held for film... Makes me wonder if they might just throw a whole lot of optical godliness into that 55 and make everyone forget the A* 85 1.4.

If they do that, look for one of my kidneys up on ebay.

Here is another question about that .pdf file. what is a Rear converter for SDM? Is that so I can use an SDM only lens on my humble K100D or am I crazy?

You're crazy.

I think it's a teleconverter that will work with SDM lenses.
