Pentax has DA* 16-50mm F2.8

I wonder why there is no wide-angle fast prime lens: 15mm is F4, 21mm is F3.2.

Wide angle and fast is sort of a specialty area, and one where you are better served by a larger sensor.

Sure, an 11-16mm f/2.8 or something would be really nice, but we never saw one and Tokina never brought that one to Pentax.  I was hoping for DA* version of it or something.
