    Go for it! You can do it

    Not likely. VL is phasing out all it's SL II lenses in PK/A mount Even they made a new version for the VL125, don't think we'd see PK/A mount

    That's bad news.

    But guess what ... i don't think i'll buy VL again. Excellent image, but I just find it too heavy for my liking.

    Is that why the recent Zeiss 35 1.4 is not longer released in PK mount? That VL will cease making anything in PK? Argh ...

    Mayb it's because Hoya don't like Cosina to make lenses in PK mount? Otherwise they won't provide glass to Cosina
