so there we are - thank-you! - Pentax is demonstrably rational and not the least bit eccentric - unless arguing from the specific to the general is a logical fallacy - nah, could't possibly be

At one point this thread was about a certain lens. Here are some parts of it up close.



Actually, this is my way of masking what a terrible shot this was. Tried to avoid reflections off the case, but completely failed, so you only get to see a few artfully cropped parts.

The golden ring is engraved and not simply painted. This is good news: it means it's the final part and the lens announcement isn't so far ahead.

If the part had been painted and not real metal for the gold trim ring, they would have just skipped the information currently covered by black tape. Good contributions in your post, JPT, hope we see this lens soon.

That golden ring is the reason why I thought it's not a 3d-printed mock-up...

Note the extra space in 1:1.4 (1:1._4).

On the other hand, the alignment mark of the lens hood isn't 'coloured' in with white, so I reckon it could be many months yet ...

Odd, indeed.

On the other hand, the casing is 3D-printed. And the golden ring might not be that final, see the comments above from monochrome and Glorfindelrb.

The plot thickens...

A relay lens? That's why it's so long.

photography is a solved problem
Solving engineering problems is not a hobby, it's a job/profession, although getting challenged by DSLR photography and liking to learn and solve problems may be the motivation, that's a confusion. For me, photography is not a problem to be solved, it's a hobby. Saying "photography is a solved problem" is like saying cars are a solved problem. Thirty years ago, cars were able to bring you from A to B, and nowadays, cars are also able to go from A to B, interestingly, people still buy new cars (one could have a old car and still travel safely from A to B, but car designs evolve and a lot of people actually buy new cars without needing it, and a car is way more expensive relative to a camera). The expression "photography is a solved problem" is a sign of boredom. I know a number of people who stopped photography completely, they left their canon dslr in the cartons, moved on to other things in life, occasionally still take casual photos with their phone with no any artistic intend; It can happen that a hobby get low prio in life, like passion it comes and go, especially when we are young. I know a guy who went all the way through Canon DSLR and he then stopped photography as a specific hobby, sold everything Canon , got a Oly M43 dropped in his bag that he uses once a year during his vacation. I fully understand that.
