Pinhole lens being produced in K-mount on Kickstarter

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bozzou/pinhole-pro-x-18-36mm-worlds-fir...hole-zoom-lens

They call it the world's first zooming pinhole lens. 40-60mm for DSLRs.

And it focuses just as fast on a Pentax as on anything else.

Remove the body cap from your K-mount camera and you'll have the f/1.0 version!

You'd get a better image leaving the cap on, but drilling a tiny hole in the middle.

While I am sick of the "most basic fundamental" experience, "dynamic focal length", "pro X" marketing blah blah blah, I might get one for the sake of encouraging people to release K-mount accessories.

More than 400 dollars -this is robbery. If you have a 42 mm adapter, in this case the cheapest ones are good enough, take an m 42 extension tube for macro and glue a thin metal folie with a hole in the center, try different hole sizes til get your best compromise between sharpness and light infall.. Different lengths on the tube give you many pinhole primes, everybody knows that primes in generel are superieur.

I think you read this wrong. It's not $400 dollars. It's only $69. If you want all 3 lenses and accessories it's only $238.
