No need for apologising . It's from Yvon Bourque's blog:

PENTAX DSLRs: Ricoh / Pentax Lernses
i don't think this picture is "corporate", but more likely done by a fan : some lenses haves back caps, some other don't, to say the least ...

FF? Wow I though it was slated to be "DA" and a companion to the 18-135.

If it turns out well and the price is right, I'll be on it!

How do you figure that? Unless it's f4 .... which seems unlikely...

Thanks. Any other signs of FF? You don't have to be precise but I'm thinking classical FL like 24-70 etc. that don't make sense on a apsc.
The lack of FA ltd update is worrying since they would be much needed high margin products together with a FF cam.

So the phone 55-300 doesnt qualify... I think we both agree?

Big difference between a 400 mm F/5.6 and a 600mm F/5.6. With a 400mm F/4 using a teleconverter is still a pretty reasonable option...

The issue of course is - if all the loyal Pentax user base has moved on, why on earth should Ricoh bring back the old Pentax? Why shouldn't Ricoh make something for the group of customers they think they can attract and tell us all to take a hike?

How is all of this their fault?
Since I didn't even mention Ricoh I am amazed you might interpret me as blaming them for everything.

Neither am I asking for the return of something old since I have myself moved on to something new. The problem now is the same problem that has haunted the Pentax brand since, well, forever. They are too slow to move with the times. (Remember auto-focus? Pretty well killed Pentax.)

I am sorry if you feel misrepresented by the fact I didn't quote your entire post. I was trained to only quote the relevant bits, and continue to teach my students the same. In any case, I was only agreeing with you, but somehow that didn't make the right impression. Oh well. Internets.
