Is coming the replacement of 01 Prime?

The 01 Prime is discontinued in B&H. Also the Pentax Q and Q10 just comes with the 02 zoom.
B&H sells all the Q lenses: 02, 03, 04, 05 and 06. But there is no way to buy the 01 Prime!

So... Is coming the replacement of 01 Prime? Maybe a 8.5mm 1.1?

Probably not considering there was nothing on the Q Lens roadmap Pentax gave us a while ago... For now you'd just have to buy a kit with the 01 and sell the rest or wait for a used 01 to show up in the marketplace. Sad, I know.

Pentax dealers in Canada sell the 01 lens by itself (aparently there is a box and everything, so not just a "pull" from another kit), but it is rare to see it in stock. No idea why this is, but a replacement is a possibility... and f/1.1 would be sweet!
