Nice! Be sure to keep us up to date with your thoughts of the lens (along with some sample shots). Maybe we can change the "special order" status.

I am mainly curious as to how it does with critical focus on the K-1.

Congratulations with this nice lens! I hope you'll take lots of nice photos.

Do you plan to use it for portraiture mostly?

Snapping ducks - that is almost as crazy as the Soligor 135mm f1.5 I saw the other day.
