D-FA f/1.8 SDM would be more likely, and probably sell a ton more. Although if they were going to make a 50mm D-FA you think they would just do f/1.7.

so do you think that the picture of the top panel here:

RiceHigh's Pentax Blog: Official New K Teasers Up and More Leaks Coming!

was just a fake? Or it is somewhat related to this topic?

give us the source.
uhmmm... I am still disappointed by the lack of the evf+ovf on the k7 or of the "secret feature" you were claiming... now I guess I'll start to take your claims on future products more doubtfully than before...

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.
I agree on this. Whomever intended to entertain us with this fake made a misstake here and is not well enough read up on Pentax terminology. A f1.0 lens would definitely be a star lens!

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; .
Just to educate myself, could you elaborate on this? I've heard something similar, but I'd like to understand where the limitiation is. Is it just that the mount is not wide enough relative to the registration distance? There may be a way around this, but to the price of worse bokeh.

From what Ive been told Nikon and Pentax's mount are simply to small to allow such a lens to exist. Canon's EF mount is the only 35mm mount that can produce such a lens, due to its larger physical size. However, I am not sure about sony, their mount seems larger than the others.

As for this picture, clearly a fake, Pentax has far better things to waste their time on, like maybe a 300 2.8, 400 4, 200 macro, DA* 85 1.4, 30mm 1.4, SDM TC.

That's not a 'lack,' it's something some claimed was coming. Still wondering what Ricehigh's 'secret Feature' was supposed to be, he's always trying to claim he was prescient while not understanding current models. What was really prescient was hose that figured he'd try to pose as an enthusiast and start slagging on the thing before he ever touched it, never mind made a photograph with one.

*That* was ...maybe just a pattern, but I'm relatively new here.

I can say that Max Chicherin posted this photo on May, 8 in Russian pentax-forum.


He has been beta-tester of Pentax for a long time. He has no any manual lenses as I know.
He said NOTHING about F1.0. Just posted this photo. He still keeps silence now.

Well, if you say something about this, I now have reasons to trust you.

Why? Useful on a 645D.

If a DFA

lens comes, perhaps it be 17-18mm.
What be 26-28mm at 24X36, and it be useful
to take shift pictures on K7.
My Tokina 17/3,5 K-type can be useful...

A 50mm f/1.8 lens on a digital 645 would cause a stir indeed. f/2 is as fast as I have ever heard for a production medium format lens.

Zeiss Planar 110mm f/2 FE - price $6,760 - the current fastest lens for 6X6 format.

Yeah, I can confirm that.

ah ah ah, FF may be (why not ?), but APS ?

(b) like jaad75 says; D-"FA" + SDM, :lolz: ;
??? There will be D-FA SDM lenses, at 99,9% for sure.

QuoteQuote:
(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.
The official roadmap is totally empty now, but it is 99,9% sure that Pentax will launch new lenses.
