Mitakon 85mm F1.2 ultrafast FF lens now definitely available in PK-Mount

After I got explicit confirmation from Mitakon that their 85mm F1.2 lens is available in PK-mount now for use on the K-1 I added it to the currently available FF lens overview: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/169-pentax-full-frame/313830-current-pent...ml#post3526206 on the 3rd party lens chart:



I think that is a perfect effects lens and seems to deliver the same outstanding results as the Canon, which is at the top of the tops:

For what exactly? Price? Otus beats it, Optical Quality? Beaten back in the day by the A*85/1.4, Portraiture? FA*85/1.4 gave it a slapping, Size? Otus is bigger and the 77 is petite beside it at the opposite scale;



Just kidding with ya, I'm sure we'll see some fabulous Mitakon 85@1.2 shots but I'd still query the Canon 1.2/85 being top of the tops.

But some lenses aren't current anymore. Schneider PC 28mm is not made anymore according to Schneider website.

Great chart. What about the Mitakon 35mm f/2?

I note the Venus Laowa 12mm f/2.8 is on the chart. A day or two ago I saw some interesting photos taken with it, but couldn't find any record that it was available in K-mount.

Where is available from in K-mount?

(Useful chart, by the way!)

I asked out of curiosity and just got an answer from Mitakon, their 100 pcs limited 135mm f/1,4 will unfortunately not be made in K mount.

I can't find any specifics on the lens, just the reports that it was coming on various sites on Feb. 18th. Since Laowa makes their other lenses in K-mount it is just assumed that they will make the 12mm in K-mount.

It's certainly here:

Jos. Schneider Optische Werke Kreuznach: Tilt/Shift Objektive

and here:

Schneider PC-TS Super-Angulon 28mm f/4.5 HM Aspheric 06-1075956

Yours for the price of five K-1 bodies!

Thanks. I'll watch for further news about it. I guess people here will report anything more concrete.

It was the photos at the latter link that made me want this lens!

Unfortunately, the photographer had an advantage that I don't have: artistic talent!

If the lens performs well (and it seems so) it might by an interesting alternative to the 15-30 as many uwa lenses are used on their widest settings most of the time.
The next big question then will be the price.
