Lol, Richard, I'm in the same boat. It's that 95% that's the killer. Well, and the PP, I'm no good at that either.

Thanks Asad!

Definitely the FA* lenses would be a "you'll have to pry them out of my cold, dead hands.. "

The only lens I have in my head is the DA*55/1.4 from the roadmap. Now it seems as it will stay as a vision only for a long time.

That is according to this post at the dreaded DPR forum:
No more lens release in 2007 by pentax.: DPR

Am I disappointed? Indeed. No more dreams! Oh well, I think I just give up.

regards,

Heh, I hope that's *not* because you're in the "know" about Pentax's big gun plans but mainly because of the qualities of the FA*s.

That hasnt been confirmed yet...

BUT, it wouldnt surprise me if the lenses are in fact delayed substantially.

Ugh. I need a good tele lens. Time to look elsewhere, I suppose...

Not one bit surprising to me... in fact I was waiting for them to make the announcement. They can't handle a complicated integration into another company, release 2 new and one revised DSLR bodies and 5 lenses -- all during the same Fall time period.

It's Pentax after all, they don't release much stuff on a normal day, let alone when they have to reshuffle their entire company around.

Cheers,
