Yeah, I can confirm that.


That it's a fake :-D For obvious reasons; (a) as I've said elsewhere, I'm 99.9% positive that it is physically impossible to make an f1.0 lens for PK mount; (b) like jaad75 says; D-"FA" + SDM, :lolz: ; (c) if the product is so far along it's development line that there would already be a user manual for it (as the picture implies), there's no way we don't know about it already *and*, even if this was some secret product intended for a surprise announcement, there's no reason it wasn't announced along with the K-7.
It doesn't look like a user manual to me. More like a new roadmap snapshot...

The label should read "D FA 645 55 F2.8."

I know what it *should* read, but...

Well, I still think it's a hoax, but that looks like a bit out of a phantom 'roadmap.'

I certainly wouldn't hold off on a 55 if that's what you want. I've actually been waiting to see what kind of rep it gets: (Gonna be a while till I can afford one anyway, but I think there's the equivalent of my 85/1.8 SSC right there: frankly, it's plenty fast for what I do (And I do lots of low light) and unlikely to be so big as any such 1.0.

IMO it's a hoax though I hope I am wrong

1) The picture it's pretty clear the one from the 645D lens (55/2.8) but let's say this is passable on an internal roadmap (although why should they need a generic picture on an internal roadmap when even on public ones lenses too early in the making have none)? Of course there is the possibility that the 2 lenses share the body and have different mounts which could be brilliant in terms of using common parts.

but

2) Is there any chance at all that a f1.0 lens is not a Star one? I don't think so. And please don't tell me there is no DFA* lenses (yet) because the Star denomination is very old in most Pentax high end glass and will most likely be given to any fast premium lens.

Radu

P.S. I know for sure that internal roadmaps exists so this is not the problem at all

Maybe i just don't know the older cameras as well, but I just checked images of all the K series cameras and none match the top of the camera in your picture. What camera is that?

Edit: yep checked again, i wonder what picture i was looking at for the K100d.. i see it has the single top button now. mystery solved.

It looks like K100D to me. But it might be K110D or K200D as well.

Yes, looks like a K100D because the K200D has also the green button up there.

It's look like 645 lens or 1.8 not 1.0 lens.

It is a 645 lens because the line is silver and not gold.

But if they changed the 55mm into a 50mm, it may indicate a different size sensor compared to what we tought 645D would get.

Interesting
