Where are the quality wide angle and tele macro?

I know they said 2013 or later, but no news? I would love something wider than the 01 lens that is the same quality as it. Hopefully in the 24-28mm eqv range and f/1.4 or 1.8. And that tele macro sounds great too. A 90-120mm eqv f/2.8 that goes to 1:1 or slightly more would be an awesome lens.

I want to give you money for these lenses, Pentax. Gimme gimme gimme.

I want the 06 but the price keeps rising to unrealistic levels. Buts it's neither wide nor a macro

Until they run out you can still get them for <$250 if you look around. But once the stock is depleted......

Although not a true macro, the 06 at 45mm gets you pretty close....

Don't try this at f/2.8 though

+2 and I don't think I'll wait much longer. Not with lens prices going up and the temptation of the Ricoh GR instead. Or the temptation of finding a GRDIV for not much more than what the Q wa is going to cost.
