That was a bit the idea which has led me to post the Salon's official picture: that somebody more talented than me would do exactly so.

How do you calculate that? Curious about your thought process. Entry level FF is a new thing to me, just rumored in the last few days so I've no idea. But $1,200 seems crazy low. D750 is $2,299, D610 is $1,496.

My calculations on flagship say $3,299 MSRP with discounts to below $3,000 once initial surge has passed.
There are a handful of other factors at play here.

Nikon is currently "fire-sale-ing" pretty much all of its top end models for almost 1/3 off; the D810 can be had for about $2200, the D750 can be had for $1500, and so on and so forth down the line. Yes, they are grey market items without a USA warranty, but this still speaks to the actual MFG price of the item, and Nikon's profit margins. In other words, if Nikon can afford to offer a $2300 camera for $1500, and a $3300 camera for $2200, then IMO Pentax (who always likes to offer even greater value than both Nikon and Canon) will probably MSRP a camera maybe as much as half way to that lower price. So if it's an "affordable" full-frame, $1700-$1800, and if it's a flagship, $2500-$2700?

I'm just saying it's possible. Look at the K-3 II prices (which by the way have dropped a couple hundred already) compared to the 7D mk2 and D7200 prices...

If you look really hard you will see she got a Pentax FF in her right hand. (inspired by Pentax K-S1 advertising)

I visited with my local shop owner yesterday and his Tamron rep said that at least one Pentax FF will have the 42MP Sony sensor and will be out in December. Tamron will have 3 K mount lenses available by then: 24-70, 70-200, and 150-600. Just stoking the coals.

Excellent news. And where Tamron goes, Sigma will follow.

Thanks for sharing. I must say I'm still baffled as to how Tamron would know which sensor will be used in the new camera. There's no reason I can think of as to why Ricoh would have divulged that to them.

Maybe if Tamron is in fact designing lenses for Pentax FF they just might need to know the sensor Pentax is going to use. Just a thought.

I don't know why Tamron should need to know anything more than (a) it's flat, and (b) it's 24x36 (and possibly, can move x additional mm via SR).

This is good news. I don't know how much info Tamron has about Pentax's activities, but certainly they know about what lenses they are personally releasing and this will be the first new release in k mount by Tamron in ages.

Wasn't there a story that someone named Hirakawa now designs lenses for Tamron? I wonder if he ever talks to anyone in the Ricoh lens design department.

According to a Tarmon interview, "most" of their production is OEM. They probably make the Zeiss Batis 85mm or they at least designed it. Sony is the largest shareholder with 12% of Tamron. Pretty sure Tamron makes most of the Sony lenses. Tamron has made lenses for Nikon including the 70-300mm. Tamron probably makes the kit lenses for multiple manufacturers.

Most reviews claim that the newest Tamron 70-200 f2.8 is as good as the $2000 Nikkor/Canon models and it cost half the price.. it that comes to Pentax its going to be awsome.

The Tamron lens I'd like to see in a K mount is the SP 15-30/2.8 Di VC USD.
