What's going on with the 01 lens

Hey Folks,

Have you all noticed this lens is out of stock in the US? It's a special order item from the Pentax web store. The Amazon and eBay sellers are all from Japan. B&H doesn't even list it. What gives?

It was never really available for sale as a standalone lens originally...but at least now there's way to get an order in for it!

Adorama's got it but it's also back-ordered: Pentax 01 Standard Prime 8.5mm f/1.9 Lens 22067

I got the 01from Adorama a while back, I noticed several items are on back order, It took several weeks to get my 50 f1.8 last month, must be the Christmas rush.
