As per title...here on photorumors.

Said to be FF compatible and weather sealed.

Just need the price to be 'reasonable' now.

Looks interesting! We'll have to see if we can get to look at one of those.

Looks absolutely massive but then what do you expect for a FF 30/1.4? A unique focal length and nice and fast to boot.

Not quite a unique focal length - Pentax produced a K series 30mm f2.8 several decades ago (and still a very capable lens) The fast aperture does match up nicely with the recent Pentax D FA* releases though

There could be quite a difference in size and weight compared to the original Pentax 30mm!
