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.
