It should be announced FF camera with such lens. It's logical.

"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?"

If You ask me my guess will be that they will announce lenses first and than, during CP+, FF body.

I'm waiting for the "Pentax announce a FF body" thread ... that's the one to be on the first page of.

If it turns out to be affordable I will be slightly irritated, as I just ordered the Tamron 70-200. But I don't think I have to worry.

Don't they have a standard zoom to announce? Seems an important gap. Maybe with a body...

So, lets talk cash.

That lens would be $2500-3000 and a streetprice of $2700 or so, based on Canon, nikon etc..
The coming house would probably be another $2000-3000 - atleast my guess, I don't think we will se a budget model that would cut too deep into the APS-C market nor a pro model that might cut into the 645z market, So something in between, maybe with a 36MP sensor. But in the end I can just guess since I do not have any specs.
Finally, a full frame with just a 70-200 would be useless, so we could expect a 24-70 or similar aswell at ~$2000 again based on Canon, Nikon etc.


There are just a few of the old FA* zoom lenses for sale at the moment.

As I see it there are a few possible outcomes,

1. the new lenses kick the old lenses back to the stoneage, and we will see more of the old being sold, this would then cause a price drop on the old lenses.
2. The new lenses are not optically supreme, and people with the old lenses keep them. The ones for sale will be more expensive in the future.
3. the new lenses are a little better, some people will change, some people will keep. Prices will remain about the same.
4. the new full frame camera will not have built in SR (look at the old mockup pictures of the lens, there are three switches, it might indicate that the shake reduction is in the lens instead) This will ofc cause a price drop on the old lenses since people normally want SR.

Edit: did not like the bird picture on this lens...
