Not possible with a telephoto lens. With no change in the focal length it can't be shorter than a normal K-mount lens because the camera uses the same registration distance. They could, however design WA lenses that were not retrofocus and thus could be as small as Leica rangefinder lenses, but that means below 40mm or so. No real market for them however.
