If you use a crop mode on FF you'll also have to deal with a 0.78x viewfinder instead of a near 1x one on aps-c body. This is a huge advantage of the FF that is more than lost. IMO using real aps-limited lenses should be done with a TC to get the full OVF coverage, use the whole resolution,... You get the stop lost back with the improved DR of the FF and the DOF is the same as a crop sensor/mode when viewed at the same size (you use the same light but on the whole sensor).
If a lens cover more than aps but not the full 35mm image circle, shoot FF then crop as desired.
Completely agree, this is the ideal solution, the only caveat being the price of the TC.
Discounting the price of the TC, it is a briliant solution IMO.

Another new thing from Ricoh..that confirms what asahiman said about training, so will no shops sell the pro pentax gear without correct training. I can't go into details here..but they are going for a more pro training of shops, will build up and improve pro service etc. So many changes will come in the time ahead. But remember, Rome wasn't build in a day.

I guess this will be the most common case: a DA lens covering more than an APSC crop, but not the full frame. So for example a DA 21mm (31,5mm eq. on APSC) could be something like 26-28mm, which still might be more usefull than using a crop mode and getting only 31,5mm. I guess the longer DA lens the more frame it covers.
Anyhow I am looking forward to the tests of DA lenses on the K-1.

Oh, I'm looking forward on that FF and 15-30! It will replace my DA* 16-50. It'll be great on K-3 too.
I agree. 15-30 is a must-have for FF. Even for APS-C, it is very useful (22.5mm - 45mm 35mm equivalent). More importantly, it should be relatively cheap with excellent IQ. Tamron version is $1199 in U.S. Based on what we observed for 24-70mm, the Pentax version price should be close to this one.

OK the serious information starts here - that's the first time you've called it K-1, as well, isn't it?

Wow... With features comparable to D810, pricing at 2000 EUR is really a bargain! 2200 USD is not bad giving that several years ago, the announcement price for K5 is $1600!!!

That is about $500.00 less than D810 should be a big hit at that price

Exactly. From last April, we know the price will be around 2000-2500 EUR. But it is good to know that the actual price will be around lower bound. It contains a lot of other informations: eg 1) not 42mp sensor but 36mp sensor 2) Should be 4-5fps et al.
