I wouldn't expect any announcement of new cameras. Particularly that the K-70 has just been out. I would like to see new lenses for the FF and of course since I'm not going into FF, APSC dedicated lenses.

The absence of any rumors of coming news is proof of coming news.

As long as they have working samples of the soon to be released full frame glass, I'll be happy.

Has anyone heard about new lenses for the Pentax? It seems like no one is making any k-mount lenses, which saddens me...

News of new primes for full frame keep me hanging on the edge of my seat. A new 85mm in particular, especially since the new Sigma Art 85 isn't coming to K-Mount.

This broke my heart. That 85mm f/1.4 sounded beast. I'm using the rokinon, and like the IQ, but the AF would be a big boon.

I knew about the Irix, but I thought the new 85mm Samyang was Canon only...

All the manual focus lenses mentioned above are likely fine lenses. I've got a old Takumar 85mm f:1.8 that delivers magic (imo) when mounted on the K-1. But yes, I want an autofocus 85mm.
