The simplest explanation is usually the correct one - these are mockups.
Succinct and practical.

Yes, the teenagers and the babies - both of whom were being treated as separate entities can make considerable noise on their own, were at the essence of the joke which fell utterly flat.

If pentax has developed lenses with EMD* then where are the body contact pins to control it?

*ElectroMagnetic Diaphragm
No need for pins IMO (could be wrong of course).
Power comes through Power zoom contacts, digital pin allows for sending commands (including focussing ones).
Is there something missing?

That would be one way of doing it, I can't really poke any holes in that idea. The voltage would have to be continuous especially for long exposures.

I have quite firmly mentioned to my mother I have no interest in having kids, I'd make a terrible parent, at best I'd be a 50's dad: involved but distant. Parents screw* you up - they don't mean to but they do. And my parents won the frigging prize for that.

*let me put it this way; the first 20 years of my life were pretty much a complete write off.
If anything near what my wife experienced, I can *totally* understand. No wonder she doesn't want kids (much to my dismay).

Ok, so I'm not completely off at least. Of course it would screw up compatibility with older body which like to advertise so unless they wanna release firmware for a bunch of older bodies, they won't touch such an idea.

Hey Kenspro - thanks for sticking to the PFs threads through the lead up to FF. It was a torrid time for you.

I have been patient and am very happy with what I see. Sure not a FF that beats the competition hands down on paper, but, I got this feeling that the paper specs don't tell the whole story. I have a massive legacy FF lens collection waiting for use on the FF camera. One thing I am keen to learn of is this - will Ricoh oblige us Digital - legacy lens lovers with lens profiles for uploading into the camera to correct for the 'legacy' downsides? I know it is not a money spinner directly, but, with such support Pentax may sell many more FF cameras.
Am with you 100%, also have an adapter for several 645 lenses, my pre order is in.

Im guessing the fat one is a 24mm and the thin one is a 135mm, since that would fill in the two logical holes in the pentax FF prime line up. After all they do have a team of lens designers who presumably had some time on their hands since tamron made the 15-30 and 24-70 for pentax.

The fat one looks more like an 85mm than a 24mm...

Nope: on the picture the slimmer one is shorter than the fatter one whilst the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro is longer than the 85mm f/1.8.

On second inspection the thin one clearly has what looks like a limited lens construction with smooth barrel and thin focus ring, while the first has more traditional fat rubber grip! interesting.
how does the thin one compare to the 77ltd in size?

The 85 f/1.8 is rumored to be priced around 1000$ ?! That's higher than the 85mm f/1.4 EX from Sigma... There are some Pentax 85mm SMC-A* and Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 available on the marketplace for less.

I think the fatter one maybe the Tamron 35mm F1.8 and the thinner one a remake of this lens: SMC Pentax 28mm F2 Reviews - K Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

That would be great. The thing has very good reviews and coupled with modern coatings, DC/SDM and WR/AW would be a step in the right direction, i.e. a better coverage of the wide-angle range.
