Any fast, wider angles, possibly WR? Something like a 24 F2 and for the normal, a fast 35?
+1 Yes Please.

Any plans on WR limiteds, or at least WR primes?

Tethering

What are Pentax's plans for tethering support?

Will there be a Remote Assistant again?

Are there plans to collaborate with Adobe regarding tethering support for Pentax cameras in Lightroom?

Any chance that independent software developers could receive information / code, in case nothing of the above is planned?

FA limiteds

Have the FA limiteds been discontinued?

If so, what are the plans for replacements?

Unique Features

Pentax has previously indicated that an FF model is being developed but that it would need a unique selling proposition in order to be marketed.

Does Pentax still think this way, or would the only FF camera that has both an optical viewfinder and in-body image stabilization not be unique enough?

Any plans for exploiting the patent on the hybrid viewfinder?
Or perhaps a five-way image stabilisation as Olympus is already offering (would be great for macro photography)?

Has the timeline for launching the FF model become anymore concrete?

I Want . . .

1. The promised 1.4X tele

2. A good enthusiasts 400 f/5.6, sub $2K

3. And a pet peeve of mine: a one piece battery charger with the terminals built into the charger (instead of a separate power cord). It would be less expensive to produce and I would no longer have to deal with that stinking cord.

who is owning this patent, do you know this?

I would be interested in the FF topic, I wanna know all information they can provide about their development status (but they will probably tell us not anything about this ...)

A pet peeve of mine, too.

A not-perfect-solution that I use:

When you buy extra batteries for your Pentax just buy ones that come with a charger - they're all the fold away type. I got 2 K-5 batteries and a charger for <$20, and the batteries last just as long as my Pentax branded ones.

Suggestions for Questions for CP+

Areas where I would like to see movement are as follows:

1. Commitment for future replacement of the K5
2. Commitment re the release of a FF
3. Indication as to whether the full frame will be able to make use of the old FF glass we have been holding onto
3. uncrippling of the K-mount
4. The release of a leading edge Flash System not just refinements of the existing
5. More WR lenses and more Star lenses.
6. More autofocus points and improved overall autofocus for birds in flight and sports.
7. Improved video controls and flexibility
8. WiFi to connect with wireless devices

Hy Pentax users.

1. The promised 1.4x TC
2. 2x TC?
3. ...-400 f/4.5 or f/5.6 when can we see it and buy?
4. Are there plans for fix telephoto lenses such as: HD 300 F2.8wr?

Otherwise, I am happy with Pentax equipment

Urmo.
