"Dive in" Lens proposal

Hello Pentax

Linked to the K-01 (and follow up models in future) I would like to propose a specifc set of products and solutions:
- New lens that dive into the mirror box (K01) with "external shape" like DA40 XS
- DA 17/2,0 XS
- DA 24/2,0 XS
- Introduction of according optical view finders (or one that can be switched for certain primes)
- Introduction of an according Firmware update for K7 & K5x that allows use of these lens on DSLR in LV mode

And finally I would like to have an affordable price

Did you see the prototype that was presented at CP+ 2012?

Pentax has unfortunately since then abandoned the idea, not enough interest I guess. That's why they've discounted the K-01 so heavily

If I could get a pancake DA 24mm/2.0 XS lens, I would snap one up in two seconds
