really, for real reals?

As much of a mock up as that ahem, cough cough, image, looks like, this would be a seriously nice lens.

Apparently, this is a Russia only thing. Nothing on Pentax Japan. Test market?

Hey I read on the internets this is will be the 2010 FF kit lens, since it will probably be the only D-FA lens around!
