I'd love to have this lens for the K-01 I use for street shooting. But
I just can't justify the expense.

I want a full-frame version of this lens. It would my daily choice on
the K-1.

What I'm wishing for is a slower (say f/3.5 or 4) 24-70 weather sealed
zoom for full-frame. I have the 28-105 f/3.5-5.6 and it's a great lens
that's my main choice for hiking but I'd happily sacrifice 35mm on the
long end to get an extra 5mm on the wide end.
