curses! Too long. And why? This mythological lens needs to be 30mm to make me save my pennies.

I think it's going to take more than pennies. If you want a 1.0, getting it down to 30mm would at least require hugeness, there's laws of physics involved. Doesn't D-FA mean it'd cover full-frame, though, if it's a normal you want?

I'm kind of suspecting hoax, though.

Glad I didn't buy the DA* 55mm f/1.4 yet. I'm gonna need all the pennies I can save for that lens if the picture is true.

Yeah, I can confirm that.


That it's a fake :-D For obvious reasons; (a) as I've said elsewhere, I'm 99.9% positive that it is physically impossible to make an f1.0 lens for PK mount; (b) like jaad75 says; D-"FA" + SDM, :lolz: ; (c) if the product is so far along it's development line that there would already be a user manual for it (as the picture implies), there's no way we don't know about it already *and*, even if this was some secret product intended for a surprise announcement, there's no reason it wasn't announced along with the K-7.

It was posted by unknown user on Polish forum. He wrote only 2 posts so far - the first one was a sample picture form K-7 before the official premiere and a second one is that picture...

The label should read "D FA 645 55 F2.8."
