So let's play the game and assume that the unico... FF Pentax is coming. What have Ricoh representatives actually said about it? It is to be of K mount. And a DSLR IIRC. But do we know if screw AF will be supported or SDM/DC/HSM only? And I guess IBIS is a given - or is it?
Not a direct statement, but from asahi man
"Pictures of the new body are out,but only for show in the offices.
Also at CP+ public will see more about the camera.
It is bigger than K-3 and not the same Style,but simmilar.
No design experiment.

Of course not. It annoyrs me too but Pentax did try to do both and it got them heavy backfire.
I would not be tempted again if I were them.

Old 80-200/2.8 exist for a reason.

The longer lenses don't have the SDM problems that some of the shorter lenses had. Weight gets to be a real issue with big long lenses, and having a mechanism that isn't used just adds weight.

The older film bodies won't be supported.

I found A* 200 macro on ebay yesterday. Now when I wanted to post here the link, I can't find it anymore... Sold.


It's irony that the seller's address is only about 100 km far from where I live.


But the price was extreme... 3000 USD.


OK, so I was wrong... it's even more... 3.999 USD...

Oh Zvonimir, you Pentax oracle you. Thanks for clarifying your level of "insight," and in so friendly a manner, not to mention.

Please knock it off. You know as much as anybody else here, and that is nil.
In 10 days do not even think to fall into temptation and write that the revealed stuff is "exactly as you have been informed about", with perhaps "one more thing left unveiled, to be ready for the summer".
