Well it's supposed to be the same optical formula as the FA 35/2.

In theory you could shave off a tiny bit of the inner edge of each the apeture blades (not with a dremel )
and then it might go out to f2 possibly with some vignetting if the new lens barrel design "shades it".

Now, ..If you didn't completey destroy it during the surgery the apeture might only stop down to something like f6.3 instead of f22 and the lens contacts would report the same apeture as before.

Maybe better to just stick with the f2.4 and be happy with that.

The owners of FA35/2 are happy because their lens is f2 and still worth more money on the used market.
Probably so.. guess they are close but not quite the same..

Here are the respective diagrams, from Ricoh-Pentax and Boz Dimitrov:






The arrangement of the first three elements, with the second being aspherical, is very similar.
In the DA 20-40, the final extraordinarily-low dispersion element replaces the final aspheric element of the FA 20-35.
The 20-40 has a single element at element #3 while the 20-35 has a group of three elements there.

Tokina will release the AT-X 70-200 F4 PRO FX VCM-S by around $1,100 in May, according to a DC Watch report. Tokina is also displaying an AT-X 24-70 PRO FX f2.8 at CP+. Price and release date aren't yet determined.

Is Pentax FF closing?

As far as we know, there is NO DEAL anymore between Tokina and Pentax, so we should not expect a Tokina lens to become a Pentax one for FF.

Only 3 years in the pipeline? Pentax users are somewhat disappointed with such a notion, for if something is not at least 7 years in the pipeline, it hardly fits the Pentax description.

Only if another company is taking over, stops almost everything, cancels products from roadmaps and then is selling them over to Ricoh

What will happen if Ricoh doesn't release a FF K-mount camera within the next 7 months? All this hype and rumor surrounding it could be very deflating to some people.. there is always a kilometer of rumor developed through a millimeter of information at the Pentax Forums.

This place is a rollercoaster of emotion surrounding a camera body with a Full Frame sensor..

FF is coming yay
oh wait it is not.. boo
but it still is on the radar yay
but not this year.. boo
looks like this year yay
nope just kidding.. boo
etc etc

Very nice description.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought that Pentax has some previous collaborations with Tokina, and Tamron, to sell their lenses under Pentax name. DA 10-17mm, and DA 18-250mm. And if I remember well, in 2012 was some rumors about a new future collaboration, again with Tokina.

Then they will sell more K-3's. I am not in a hurry. It 'll take me half a year at least to save up enough from de moment it is released anyway.
