New Zeiss ZK Series for Pentax

A Spanish web site notes that Zeiss is bringing out a new ZK series compatible with the Pentax KA mount. While they will be manual focus, this indicates that the lenses will have automatic aperture coupling. These should be some superb lenses. The first lens to be released will be the 50mm f/1.4 ZK Planar T* in August. After that we should see the 85mm f/1.4 ZK Planar T*, 25mm f/2.8 ZK Distagon T*, and 35mm f/2 ZK Distagon T* in the months following August. The last two will be released near the end of the year and will be the 50mm f/2 ZK Makro-Planar T* and 100mm f/2 ZK Makro-Planar T* lenses.

I would love to pick up all of these lenses. I think they will be a great addition to the excellent line of Pentax lenses. You can read the original Spanish site translated into English here.
