Because fast zooms are very costly and Pentax do produce some fast 2.8 constants... do you think they would sell well as a kit lens?
f2.8 is not that fast, my regular lens used to be a FA 35/f2, now I'm using the 31mm/f1.8 as my day-to-day lens.

In film days, 50mm/f1.4 or f1.8 used to be the "kit lens"...

A "cheap" but good 28-30mm f/2 or f/2.8 prime would be a pretty good kit lens for an APS-C camera. Manufacturers are going to stop making garbage, only if the consumers catch on and stop buying it.
...and that is not something we'll see happening anytime soon. Just look at the market share of Canon and Nikon entry level DSLRs!

If it is going to be a full frame, oh boy is it going to be devastating for K-7 sales. This can become very nasty and entertaining! Samsung vs. Pentax, a slug fest!!!
What, that EVF camera people keep calling an SLR?

I don't see how people who claim lack of a K-mount FF DSLR is such a deal-killer for using K-mount suddenly turn around and claim that any availablility of a ...err, full-frame K-mount DSLR would 'devastate sales:' however you slice it, actuall sales of full-frame cameras just aren't that big a share of the market.

31mm/f1.8 Limited

Too high

Seriously, I bought mine on eBay for 700 (P&P + VAT incl), the official price in France is more around 1100 ... I see no real point in buying lenses especially oldish ones in France. Body yes.
