Does that mean June or August or even later. Does anyone here know?
In my opinion after summer holidays unfortunately, but I would like to be mistaken in this case.

Nope we don't. Ask a pessimist and he will say summer is really autumn and maybe not even 2018 (they call themselves realists, don't believe them). Ask an optimist and he will say summer starts June first (meteorologically) and it will be available in shops from next Friday. Ask your wife and she will say it doesn't matter because you don't need another lens anyway and the garden needs some attention and the garbage needs to be taken out.
hmmm, what about astronomical summer starting on 21st June?

Summer of 2018 still seems a little vague. Does that mean June or August or even later. Does anyone here know?
Around here it's been so hot these last days it's like summer. I'm awaiting the new 50 anytime now.

Will be interesting... I hope in June but again what do I know. Wonder if the DA * 11-18 will be bumped back till fall.

I hope not.... I'm just waiting for this DFA 50 because I hope that it will start a sell off of Sigma EX 50s. I plan on buying the 11-18 along with the Sigma...

"Summer" is next December from my perspective.

This conversation is pointless. We have no data. It will come when it comes.

In my opinion yes because production of the DFA 50/1.4 could be blocking another batch.

In my opinion, no. If they were going to miss their release date for the two lenses, they would have announced the delay in the one apology and roadmap change, rather than having to do it twice.

That could be also correct. We as customers have to wait for what's to come...

I hope I am wrong but I could see the dates sliding back due to production batches but what do I know. I just want a date!

Japan has essentially same seasons North America does, and I'm guessing that is more relevant to a Pentax mind.
