The Pentax lens I always wanted is the Pentax-L 43mm f/1.9 Special that they produced in Leica Thread Mount for a short run of about 2000 units. Most were sold in Japan and still command a price around $1500 or so as a complete set with the matching optical viewfinder. 

A year or so back after I bought the Leica CL, I found one available in Japan EBay for $600 without the finder and nabbed it. It’s every bit as good a lens as I expected. (-:
