D FA 21 Limited is one of the three.

Yay...!.
Much needed wide angle prime for the K-1. And its a limited series. So we all know what to expect.

It didn't mention what's the aperture or did I missed it?
Wouldn't mind for F4 since the wide angle, but F2.8 would be great

Did seem like it was f4. And I will be totally ok with that.
Imagine an equivalent of DA15/f4 on a full frame. Goose bumps.

It's f/4 or brighter since there is a '4' mark on the depth-of-field scale.

My bet is, in the Limited Tradition, they give it a precise number which is lower than 4.

Gorgeous lenses BTW.

If they keep the FA Limited tradition it should be equal or lower than f/2

What a cracker of a lens. I only shoot APS-C and have no need for FF but I think I might stump up for this just to have the complete set of Limiteds!

Take my money, Pentax!

Hoping for 2.8 but 4.0 would do fine. I was hoping for 20 or 21 and they deliver! Nice.

Bokeh as standout feature of f4 uwa lens? Perhaps they've made it faster but with more "traditional" image performance at large apertures. Makes the lens flexible.

It looked a fair bit bigger than the 31mm, or what do you think?
