they won't make a 28-70 when they just released the 24-70! F/4 or not. But who knows for the future!

15-30, 24-70, 70-200 + the coming primes.
I expect a new 50mm but primes in plural is a welcoming surprise.

IMHO the minimum for most 'pro' is : 35mm, 50mm, 85mm (and then a 24mm and a 135mm).
My guess is that they will make a re-branded tamron 35mm f/1.8, design a new 50mm f/1.4 and use the optical formula patented by tamron to make a 85mm f/1.4... Or just release an updated-coating version of the limited

With the 77 FA Limited so close in focal length and a D-FA 100 also in existence, and with zooms no longer the second-rate option they were back in the Takumar days, I suspect a clean-sheet-of-paper 85 is not a priority.

Pentax current "APS-C" prime line has almost all FF coverage...

If I were to guess on new SFL lenses for FF, I might predict a 20/21mm f2.8 or f4, and maybe a reissued 135mm f2.8, which was a pretty good lens and certainly a good mechanical design (especially liked the pull-out hood - why did I part with it?). Of course I'd like to see reissue of the auto-focus 200 f4 macro. Try to locate one used - a very uncommon optic that commands a premium price when offered. However, a Sigma 180mm f2.8 macro in K-mount would serve just as well.

Probably but I rather was targeting the normal range with /4 aperture.
24/28-105/120 would a lot better and very welcome

As a pure landscape photography I am hoping more for a 21 mm prime and incorporate the 24-70mm. On a personal level I won't go for the 15-30. 1) because of distortion, 2) lack of filter systems available for an nd grad.

15-30 will be rebranded Tamron, just like 24-70
And with that lens, you'll be covered from 15mm to 450mm. Can't wait to see the lineup.

Two weeks to go!!!

My current questions eager to know are:

1). Is 36mp sensor BSI sensor?
2) class leading OVF?
3) fast AF?
4)Full screen AF coverage?
5)what the prime lenses to be reveal? DFA 85 1.4 sounds to be a safe bet as K1 targets pros first?

How much?

I'm new here and my biggest question is how much the new FF will cost. Does anyone have any good estimates on that? (Sorry if this has been discussed already. ) Thanks
