Of course - duh. Those of us not buying FF can buy whatever we need.

Yes, mainly as I only have one DA lens, the DA14. Every other lens I have bought since getting into Pentax has been a K, M* or FA.

There seems to be an assumption that every Pentax shooter can't wait to go for FF.

I see big disappointment ahead for those thinking it will solve their bad photo problems. It hasn't fixed mine...

I still use film cameras from time to time, so all my dSLR lenses are FF. The only interchangable APS-C lenses I have are Sony's SEL.

Some might buy FF glass to use on crop... and not buy crop only glass anymore for fear of losing value.

Price difference up front is not always worth it. Sorry but deciding now is a bit silly until the economic shake out in reality.

I never did own such lenses, so I'm not going to start now.

Indeed, part of the reason for this question/poll... loads of hype, frenzy and panic... will that translate into less sales of DA glass for instance

Yes. I'm not convinced I need FF. I also think the price delta for the lenses is a big deal.

I am only worried that without the sole flagship being APSC we may see FF only features emerge.

Most of my glass is already FF anyway. I don't have an FF yet, but if I plan on getting one, I will make sure I have the glass I want to use on it. And also, if the FF comes, I can still use my crop glass if I want to.

Telephoto and zoom lenses might be okay if crop only. Wider angles I would prefer FF

APSc DSLr's will still make up the vast majority of Pentax camera - and lens - sales for quite some time to come. Probabaly by some ridiculous number like 10:1.

Fear not the demise of DA lenses.

The only current and announced pentax lens I might want is a 18-55 WR lens and I do not know even that.

The last two lenses I have bought are the FA 20-35 and the DA 15.
