Laowa is doooomed...

It’s as if other companies’ stuff doesn’t always come out immediately or on time...

Yes, very disappointing. The barrel size and mount opening between Pentax and Nikon are similar and the Canon version has an aperture motor so why not a KAF4 with motor driven aperture? Perhaps licensing issues more than technical. Laowa has been good about K-mount support although they have a few other lenses with no K-mount option.

Addendum: I asked Laowa on FB about k-mount for the 100mm 2:1 macro. This is their answer:

Hello Pascal, we currently have no plans in making Pentax mount for this lens. Will let you know should we have a change of mind. Thanks.

If true, this is definitely going to be an instabuy for me!

That's good news. Any announcement as to when these would be available? Or if the aperture would be electrically controlled as on the Canon version? There seems to be nothing about this on Laowa's website and a quick check of their FB page either.

They have been hosting live videos on Creative Macro Photography on FB it seems.

Availability of this lens in K-mount would be awesome! Any public statement?


Almost certainly a buy for me as well if it has auto-aperture - either at the "A" level (full control from the body) or even just the "M" level (control on the lens, but focus wide-open and auto-closing of the iris when firing).
