new tilt/shift lenses with K-mount?

Reading a rangefinder forum, I came across the following message which announced tilt-shift lenses from Schneider for FF cameras, including a version with K-mount: (this is Google Translate from Japanese, so be warned)

Google Translate

So now all we have to do is wait for the K-02 or L-01. Speculation aside, if K-mount is supported, that is significant.

Looks like they're also supporting Olympus OM for the 28mm... That seems silly.

The 50/2.8 and 90/4.5 have been out for a long time already.

Both Schneider and Hartblei (the new, german version with optics by Zeiss) have had K-mount tilt/shift lenses for a while now. Haven't seen them in person, but both have responded to me in the past saying "yes, you can order them." They don't have automatic aperture control though... so just barely K-mount.

Well, to be fair, if you are doing Tilt-Shift photography, you are probably doing everything manually anyways, and yes, these lenses have been out for ages. Move along here people, nothing to see.

Did not intend to start a FF thread, misread the post on the link, and I had heard previously that here are no T/S lenses available for Pentax–so I assumed it was real news.
Well, in a reasonable price, there are no such lenses indeed.
Can the thread be closed?

Schneider offers a 2.8/28 mm PC lens for approximately 20 years and you can get it with Pentax mount.
T/S makes no real sense for APS-C cameras based on FF systems...

Why? A macro with tilt shift capability is quite useful on APS-C cameras.
