It's so refreshing to see something from someone who actually has something to talk about, unlike folks like myself, who generally just talk to amuse our selves.

Don't disparage yourself, Norm. You occasionally amuse me too

Well that's nice, but it's a completely un-intended consequence.

... the sale of the 2.8 70-200 should start in September ...
Can you shed any light on your September vs B&H's February (https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/10-pentax-slr-lens-discussion/302480-d-fa-70-200mm-f2-8-eta-according-b-h.html#post3354271)?

Let's just suppose for a moment demand for the lens outstrips supply by so much that they're delaying it allow time to increase initial stock. If that's the case, who is to say what place in line USA comes?

Is this (and the FF) potentially another 645Z?

Seems like that would be a question for B&H, not asahi man. Who knows what goes on in the marketing department of these stores?

Yes, they are usually intended for my amusement and those of my close companions.

Let's suppose Klondar, ruler of the Neptonians from the Beta IV quadrant, beams down in the middle of the photo expo and announces they are here to share their vast knowledge of chocolate making by using the heat generated by the sensor of Sony mirrorless cameras in video mode.

We can suppose virtually endlessly, but factual information should be released shortly..

Would someone explain to me the logic that the D FA* 70-200/2.8 lens release somehow gates the FF body release (and vice versa). Seriously! The lineup currently lacks a normal zoom and nobody is getting their undergarments in a wad over that one despite two such lenses being on the road map.

Let's suppose I don't know anything and I'm just posting #%*! my Dad says on the Internet.
  • If I know anything I can't say anything until I know I can say it.
  • If I say anything I can't know anything because if I know anything I'd know I can't say it.
  • If I know anything and I say anything you all should know I'll never know anything again
  • If I think anything I can say anything so long as, I suppose, I say
  • Cogito, ergo sum just posting #%*! my Dad says on the Internet.

Hah Hah. I make myself laugh.
