It is much easier and cheaper to get a contax biogon and adapt it to a sony nex (or a newer Leica Biogon ZM version), I think.

I have never seen Distagon 21mm in PK mount. Does it even exist?

Another option is to get it in Contax/Yashica mount and adapt it using Leitax adapter, again expensive.

Hey, you are selling it? Well, this is a rare beast indeed! Likely the best 21mm out there.

Yes, it's rare, expensive and stellar performer. Quite heavy and large though.

I've gone the same way as you with NEX-5N (still keeping the K-5 for the time being) and just ordered Biogon 21/4.5 ZM. I have not been able to find out whether it performs well on the 5N though, so it's a bit of a gamble (have you heard anything?). It's pretty certain that Distagon 21/2.8 will perform brilliantly on the K-5, though.

From what I have seen, the biogon 21/4.5 works better on NEX than biogon 21/2.8. I'm sure it's better than distagon from 4.5.
