I bought my used FA*80-200 last year for US$1300 - almost immaculate condition. I am happy with this lens, in fact extremely so.

Let me put the matter this way; I have said another camera will come in good time BEFORE the FF. So then we can see if I'm only are what you called me, "to make themselves more important and to kill some time, kids around are making up all other stories" or not.
and my thread last month.. funny no K3 successor..was laughed at! of course a K3II or whatever will come very soon,if nothing but to compete with Nikon 7200 or Canon 7DII

It seems the K-3 successor will use same sensor as D7200. DXO measured D7200's sensor with high dynamic range, and overall score 87 is the highest among APSC.
Nikon D7200 Measurement: Outstanding Dynamic Range - DxOMark

So obviously Pentax can't rest any longer, and they decided to launch K-3II immediately. Hopefully this summer.

Hi Kenspo,
For the wide 15-30mm, do you think it is under cooperation with Tamron ?
I know the tamron one is great and even better than Nikon 14-24mm. If that is true, I don't mind. But if Pentax developed from their own patent, I hope it will be better than Nikon 14-24mm.

I can't tell for shure. It will come with the Pentax brand, but those two companies have worked together before. Haven't got so much info on the wide-angle yet.
