A lot of people have in fact ordered it; and even the new (black one, not the silver one included with the K-5) Pentax DA 40mm xs f2.8 is not expected to be out till the end of the month - and it's expected to be back ordered. I got my newer version XS in an outfit with a K-01; and was already offered more than double what it will retail for.

The new XS does have one minor issue though (on both the silver and black models); the front filter is only some 27mm. Have fun trying to find filters in those sizes. I've already purchased three different variations of step-up adapters
I'm definitely going to get one. I've read some even fabricate sun hoods for the lens. Which I think is strange, because it appeal of lens is it's small size and added mobility. Adding a big sun hood does away with that.
