Implying something that many pentaxians waited for... or simply a typo? but if it's for lens release... why do a countdown?!

Looks like this FF may be really happening
With the 50-135mm, this lens would be superfluous without a FF.

"Still there is no information regarding the specifications, but because D FA is, this lens becoming the lens of full size correspondence being secure, the shank.Because this lens is the star lens, it may be able to expect to optical efficiency, is.

While either the body of full size is not that much distant, perhaps, that, the lens for full size is done release, it appears don't you think?"
Hard to argue with that (inasmuch as I found it incomprehensible)

Oh come now, it is perfectly clear. Pentax might, possibly be working on a "body of full size that is not too distant", so Venus or Mars. "This lens is the star lens" so again an astronomical reference. And "able to expect optical efficiency" clearly means it works best in clear or no atmosphere. So obviously Pentax is working with NASA on a replacement for the Hubble telescope.

It will be called the Heliosphere Density - Faculae Accumulator (HD-FA) 70-200.

I bet the FF stands for "fun format". It's like a fun sized* candy, just with the sensors.

*If you are not from US and haven't seen fun sized candy, that's what people call sad sized candy here.
