Zeiss 28mm f/2 Distagon T* ZK - any info yet?

I was curious about this lens from those that may have used it, but can't seem to find much out about it. My usage would be nature / landscape, interested in it's ability to resolve detail at infinity, and its color rendition, etc...

Is this a newer lens, and why I can't seem to find much out? or an older one that never got any respect?

The Zeiss 28mm is an improved version of the Pentax K28/2 (which was the result of a collaboration of Zeiss/Pentax). Since already the K28 was outstanding, so must be the new Zeiss.

I am very tempted to buy one myself ...

There are an 18, 21, 25 and 28 actually

Reasons:

18/3.5 - widest
21/2.8 - widest at 2.8
25/2.8 - closest focuser (0.17m)
28/2 - widest f2

And if they are too cheap you can always buy the industrial versions
