Wondering if the 'wide angle single focus lens' 2016 roadmapped might make an appearance as a HD D-FA 25mm f4 Ltd. ?

I think I know a few things about the surprise. It's a long missing lens for the APS-C shooters ��

It seems to be a winner on paper and if it is on par with the latest DFA* 70-200/2.8 then it will be a great addition!

600 f5.6 compact prime for $1990, that would beat any Canikon long lens in terms of sharpness / price ratio.

Pentax please give us an 80-400 or 100-400 with PLM for APSC. I'm not a technical person but f 3.5 if possible. Please, I beg you. Some of us are going to kill for this lens, particularly me!

Yawn... and you need this because?
Faster AF, sharper and more suited for K-1's sensor? Some of us welcome the future

I was looking for something like "For my wedding photography business." or "For product photography." But cheerleading is nice too.

Some people wonít admit what they donít know and try to bluff their way through...
Like I said it's all speculation...

And neither you, me nor everybody else not deeply involved into the business of involved companies, will know for sure.

But recap your own post... aren't you actually blaming yourself when you say that YOU know whats on the table and others don't?

And looking at the pic of Sigmas new 50mm 1.4 and next to it the picture of the 50mil DFA to come...
Ahem... I would say this looks pretty close...

But again: Who cares as long as good glass is available?

That would be my dream too! But while you isolated some of my words to fabricate our dream I was talking about a lens that is in the roadmap and I've learned that is coming also along with the 50/1.4! And the specs I've heard about make it very interesting! Bright lenses are always welcomed

60-250 makeover (equivalent I mean)?
Or 300/2.8 ?

Mmmh, did you check the price of the 560?? You're asking longer, compact, officially full frame (I guess), for half the price... I'd love, but that doesn't look realistic at all. And very close to the 560, when there are huge gaps to fill for long lenses (300 2.8, 400 2.8, 400 f4, 500 f4, 600 f4...).

Following an exchange on an Italian forum, I must ask...

...is it a "long [comma] missing lens" or a "long-missing lens"

The only roadmapped DA lens is the wide-angle zoom.
