I believe there is a 24/1.4 too.....
Looking at the lens map, I think there will be 35mm f1.4/50mm f1.4/85mm f1.4 (all DFA * primes) and a 20-ish mm lens that probably will be f2 or f2.8 and a little smaller size.

This is the lens map: It shows a line around 20mm with the title "ultra wide-angle single focus lens" and the one around 30mm says "large aperture wide angle single focus lens." Obviously at this point the actual focal lengths aren't certain.

No matter what Pentax does, some people will say they need to do more, they are a small company. I don't really even pay attention to the road map except to know what's coming. But waits for road map stuff tend to go on for years, not weeks or months, so it's a pretty futile exercise. Odds are, I will have found an FA* 24 or 20-35 at price I like before a new offering comes out and I'm fine with that.

I understand people want something new and exciting right now, but after a while, new and exciting gets boring. There are less available to do the job.

Very interesting. I have had complete confidence of its eventual development. Pentax often takes a long time, but then comes out with a very fine and unique product.
