How will the new Pentax FF body handle those DA lenses which have image circles compatible with full-frame sensor dimensions? Will the image be "cropped down" to APS-C size, or be allowed to be captured at complete FF size?

What is the most exciting (Pentax-related) thing you could tell us about?

(because sometimes you'll find out more by listening, instead of asking questions )

The just released image of the upcoming FF (and the new DFA lenses) show that it will be a reflex camera. What are the reasons that brought Ricoh to choose a traditional reflex with mirror and pentaprism instead of a mirrorless design?

Do you envisage a pro-level aps-c body ala k3 existing alongside the FF or will aps-c drop down a rung?
This is exactly what I'd want to ask, too.

When will they fix the flash delay issue on the K-3?
When will they implement sensor shift shake reduction for video as an option on the K-3?
Improved video functionality on the K-3?

You have some DA lenses which are FF capable, while others are not. How are you planning to address this ambiguity while updating and enhancing the current lens portfolio?

Is it possible to do a new improved something like "Active SR System"; complete automatic body controlled (or with an option "Auto" and "Manuel" user modded; also twice input options for zoom lenses like "x mm - y mm")? Then the user doesn't need to choose again and again also not to be confused about the ranges. If the system recognizes the lens' ID 100%, why should user have to choose the range? Also for zoom lenses; can't device adjust every ranges, automatically?

Any plans about un-crippling the K-mount?

I have a question about the lenses. As we all know Pentax has made quite a few legendary lenses in the past. The Holy Limited Trinity, certain lenses in the A* and FA* series etc.
Is Ricoh/Pentax planning to develop more legendary lenses in the future? And with that I mean lenses which do not have perfect MTF graphs but a pleasing overall picture (not overcorrected: no harsh bokeh, no onion bokeh etc.)

And another idea: Some kind of "Lock-switch" for the "four-way control buttons" or an option for that in the system settings. Because it is so easy to change the functions by mistakenly touch.

Any plans for Ricoh/Pentax to bring back the Uncrippled KAF2 mount for future models for full metering with legacy lenses?

Why do the recently announced Lenses (70-200, 150-450) not have OS in lens?
[although they are FF]

How does Pentax see their flash system compared to other, competing, systems in terms of use and ability?

---------- Post added 02-06-15 at 06:49 AM ----------

Is Pentax willing to work with 3rd party software manufacturers such as Adobe and DxO to get full tethering support in their products?
