Yeah, and they need to finish the APS-C high spec camera well before any full frame K-1 replacement or low spec full frame is introduced.
I've never seen that they have said "K-3ii replacement" will next one to be released.

nice carbon fiber hood on the dfa 100mm macro also, dlc has been used as a coating on motorcycle parts (forks) to reduce friction for a while now... there are many many places that do it, you can send them just about anything metal and they'll coat it.

Nor have I seen the same regarding a FF DSLR either. Very simple logic would point toward a high spec APS-C since it was mentioned by @JPT in some of his reporting from CP+. Please note, I am expressing my opinion just like you and we both could be incorrect or both could be correct.

That is correct.

I am basing my timing information on the first on-stage interview conducted by Kimio Tanaka - he was disappointed by a timeline that seemed to stretch out close to CP+ 2020; he conducted this interview on their behalf and in Japanese, so I have no reason to question their answers. I believe comments after that were tailored based on his reaction, but of course none of us knows what is behind their thinking

New Era Cap is a US-based company (Buffalo, NY).
QuoteQuote:
The Derby plant, which opened in 1958 specifically to make those fitted 59FIFTY caps, is now New Era’s only headwear manufacturing facility in the United States. (New Era’s Miami office designs and manufactures apparel.) The 240 workers in Derby hand-make 4.5 million caps a year.
So most production is made outside of the USA where they have 1200 employees. The cheaper the cap, the most likely it is made in China, Bangladesh or somewhere around.

I did fit a Red Sox cap when I was in Boston.......but didn't wanne spend that much on it. Bought a cap in Cape Cod (made in China).

OK now, this is something I would buy, a PENTAX ball cap!
I agree, though I would prefer something that looks a little less SWAT. A red letter version would be perfect.

I’d rather the brim went all the way around...

A proper water-resistant Pentax hat would be nice

Booo... buying a Red Sox or Yanks cap is like going to the Netherlands and buying an Ajax or PSV kit like every other tourist. You're a Pentaxian, you should have bought the cap of an obscure minor league team, or the Orioles or the Pirates. Not that there's much difference between the three.

I too went shopping for a cap on Cape Cod, also on Martha's Vineyard, and couldn't find a single one made in the USA. Most were from Bangladesh, as I recall, but I think some were Chinese...

The funny thing was that in JFK library and Museum in Boston there was only one memorabilia "Made in the USA" and all the rest in China and the likes.

I’m surprised no one’s proposed a “Make Pentax Great Again” cap.

How about "Make Pentax Relevant Again"

I love the look of the new D-FA* 85mm lens. I'm sure it will be an excellent lens, but Ricoh has to improve the AF speed and accuracy of the cameras. I'm really hoping they can make the hybrid OVF a reality.
