It would be even nicer to get Voigtlander and Carl Zeiss back in the tent, but I doubt the K30 is the camera to do that. Perhaps the K-5 successor will be the one to do so.
Oh yes, their macro and portrait lenses are neat. They're not on eBay as much as I'd like .

32 days to go, and still not a single leak or credible rumor.

We could be fixed within about 3 weeks

...That rumor again...

If it's true though, then Pentax really is deader then dead.

These images are not the real thing. You can safely assume that early mockups never have much actual substance. All the development still has to be done.
Also, to make a very long lens only for APS-C and not for FF doesn't make much sense. The actual differences in design would be almost negligible. The price for such a lens is mainly defined by the glass used, and this is dominated by the front element: 560mm/5.6=100mm. The money you can save for not making it work well on FF is negligible. So that's what you do, you make it for FF.
and deciding it's not FF because it is called a DA lens no longer counts with the release of the DA50 which in all marketing is deemed FF compatible

But it was labeled green on a roadmap! Those colors are legally binding.

Sonyalpharumors gives to this rumor the rating "SR5=almost certainly correct!" (their highest level of certainty ~= 99%)

If Sony comes up with an FF NEX, and Pentax again lags behind, then they are dead. Dead and cremated. Gone. Forgotten. Because why get a Pentax APSC DSLR if you can get a Sony NEX FF for (probably) less money?

the nex is designed for a FF sensor supposedly so it is only a matter of time and sensor pricing. If the price rumour on the D600 @ 1699 or less is correct and it is a Sony sensor then a nex with the same FF sensor is highly likely. If Sony is releasing 2 models and nikon one with this sensor my main concern is acan production also support a Pentax withe the same sensor because with this kind of pricing sensor demand will be astronomical compared to previous FF sensors. breaking that $2000 barrier completely changes the demand curve, just like the sub $1000 price also changes the demand curve (the K30 has supposedly sold at about 5 times the rate of the K5 for instance)

Nex FF is more likely around $2000 though since the nex 7 is 12-1300 depending on the dealer

Interesting I want it. One thing will hold me back and that is the estimated price tag. My wife would have a fit, I already spend enough money on photography, (well) according to her.....
