    The new DA 50mm lens seems to have a plastic mount like all the other DAL lens. So they might change the name to DAL 50mm F1.8...
    But hey, I don't care, as long is optically sharp!

    should still be a 40mm based on the distance scale (same as the DA40ltd)

    The 35/2.4 lens is called a DA, not a DAL

    They already released a 40XS which works fine on K-01, and the extrusion part beyond the mount plate is just way too much for a 40mm. I guess we'll soon find it out when Pentax leak/release its specs

    From my point of view, why it is probably not a 40mm lens is from a practical point of view.

    Especially since the 2 40mm lenses are already so small. Why would Pentax want to have a 40mm Limited, 40mm XS, and a 40mm XXS???

    Might be an ultra-wide? 14mm? 12mm? Can see a round bulb inside.

    It would puzzle me why they'd do that.
    So hopefully some sort of 'normal' or wide on APS-C (ie. 24mm; 28mm; 30mm)

    now, pentax has the cheapest 35mm lens, and a good priced 50mm lens, if they going to have a 85mm f1.8 around 300 sgd, then would be perfect to finish the budget lineup to attract people from C and N group.

    The 560mm is not a star lens, that is good news, means it will not cost like a star,
    imagine how Canikon charge for 500mm lens over X000 sgd, if this telephoto lens can make into a 1xxx range,

    also hope 560mm is not below xxx, as that won't make people think it is just a telescope like the Vivitar/Samyang 500mm preset lens.

    then, another reason C N people jump into Pentax for such a Prime Super telephoto.
    Actually, at first glance at the picture of the 560mm in this thread, I thought that looks like those 500mm lens seen in ebay. It needs the big and bold Pentax lettering on the hood like the FA600mm that Fengwei brought to SBG. However, I am sure it should be there on the final relased product.

    My guess the new lens for the K-01 is a 28mm or a 70mm focal length.
    The 560mm f/5.6 definitely looks interesting.
    Wah, got cheap 50mm... to compete with my expensive my DA 55mm.
    All good news...

    The 24mm and the 28mm is currently the elusive focal lengths in the DA setup. Both makes perfect sense - 23/24 would be a 35 FOV, and a 28mm would be a 43 FOV. Perfect.

    28mm was my favourite focal length for street photography when I was still doing it a while back. Such a versatile focal length.
