I found the rumor genuine
I too believe this to be a genuine rumor

I also wonder how long this thread will go on...

Like the 'why K-s1 is not for me' threads, distressingly long.. people who agree with each other can talk at least as long as people who vigorously disagree.

Actually, you can call them Amigos. The SMC are The Princesses.

Well, new Lmiteds may just only be HD DC WR versions (not that I would be unhappy).

I wouldn't bet on them retaining an aperture ring.

Yep

Samyang's there for that but no Limited though.
And those DFA's prototype do not have aperture rings either.

The DA* 55mm f1.4 (a.k.a the aps-c redesign of the FA 85mm f1.4), encompasses most of the design elements that future D-Fa lenses might exhibit, (No A-ring, SMD/DC, WR, (+ better coating)) If they happen to introduce a new Limited, it's probably going to be an wide or uwa lens.
