The HD Pentax-D FA* 85mm f/1.4 lens has been on the Pentax lens roadmap for a while now, and Pentax has released further details on the new lens, including the picture above. The lens is designed for full-frame coverage, and has been developed as a "new-generation star lens" with "drastically reviewed internal standards", which Pentax say is needed in order to "respond to future camera performance improvements."
