there is a new APS-C in the works for 2019 for the 100 years anniversary, that it will be not a K3 3 but a completely new top of the line APS-C model that will make many K1 users to want one of them guess because of the feature sets which are not mentioned.
New apc Sony sensor will have a very fast 32mp, so likely will the new Pentax.

I'm concerned about the pixel density of that sensor.
Which level is that particular Sony camera: A7000 - or higher?
I wonder if the 'accelerator' will be necessary to get the kind of higher-level ISO performance people will expect from K-3ii successor.

The 55 is great on FF too. I just had to buy a new lens hood. I find it hard to believe that Pentax labels lenses APS-c, because of the lens hood design.

I went with the DA*55 1.4, after dropping my FA 50 1.7 a month ago. I quite like it. I prefer 70 100mm for portraits so no opinion there but I like it as a walk around lens on the K-1. Iy cost me 20 bucks for a third party lens hood that doesn't vignette on the K-1. The hood it comes with works on the K-3.

Reposted from the 55mm club. Quiet SDM focussing. Very smooth out of focus areas, almost on par with the new DFA 50 1.4 which is a little smoother in the transitions.

And needed just for brand rep reasons. You have to give people a good solid reason for buying the camera. Rebadged Tamrons don't do that for you. I know it's hard to believe but people will buy a K-1 because of the DFA 50 1.4 even if they can't afford it right away. Every company needs to have something they do best. Before the DFA 50 1.4 everything was "we have one of those too." The DFA 50 1.4 is "our 50 is better than your 50" material.
Those pictures are simply amazing, you just made me think about shooting less sports and start enjoying nature a little more.

Nature is very soothing even if you don't come away with any photos.
