HD Pentax-D FA * 85mm f/1.4 SDM AW lens leaked online, official announcement coming soon

The HD Pentax-D FA * 85mm f/1.4 SDM AW lens release/announcement leaked online (now removed). I expect the official announcement to be soon. Here is the lens description (translated):

The new, high-speed fixed focal length lens HD Pentax-D FA * 85mm F1.4 SDM AW from the particularly high-quality “Star series” has three “Super ED” glass elements with particularly low dispersion to effectively compensate chromatic aberration. An aspherical lens corrects spherical aberration, coma and field curvature. The lens owes a high focusing speed to the ultrasonic ring motor with Supersonic direct drive. The abbreviation “AW” in the type designation stands for “All Weather” and refers to the weatherproof construction with sealing against water and dust. The manufacturer specifies the dimensions as approximately 123.5 by 95 millimeters. The market launch is planned for 2020, a price is not yet known.
