Pentaxforums will never be the same again when all of them are gone

Sure... it will be the same! This listing boat will get sold again in the near future, and then the dreamers can once again hope to see their elusive full frame ...

"is poor" might still be applicable. Up untill now we've only seen products that were already in Hoya's pipeline. I wonder what's going to happen when that Hoya-well dries out.
Well Hoya only had products that were in Pentax's pipeline and there were apparently lots of good projects that Hoya stopped, so there could be plenty yet to come.

I keep seeing this "FF year XXXX "; "Must be this YEAR!"; "Petition for FF" type threads since forever...


Maybe Pentax does not like demands the hard way.
So lets do it the soft way instead and send the head of Ricoh/Pentax some sad stories.

Any sob stories to tell, like "My friend waited and waited for the day and passed away last week.. holding his chest of K lenses " ?
How many PentaxForums threads will die when FF does come?

You must be the most postive person on Pentaxforums. I have to admit being jealous, I could use some of that. Hope you are right.

It will get no better as people will "die and go to heaven" if FF was released. Doom.

Doesn't seem to move the needle here.

Actually, what I wrote is correct according to asahi man, who has been abnormally prescient lately.

I'm about to die in the next year or so .
I'm going to follow the path of the FF to hell with a mirror-less body as well if nothing happens.

I died and went to heaven too, got the 645D, and am keeping the K5 for tele, but really can't imagine why i would want any Pentax FF. The urges have subsided.

If Samuel Beckett were still alive and a Pentaxian, at least you could read the play...

Definitely a couple of the old timers on DPR have passed without seeing the Pentax Full Frame...

I do know one Pentaxian, who ended up buying the D645 and about 5 lenses... IT ended up breaking up his family as his wife had enough. He has done well with his photography when he is not on a drinkin' binge
That's so sad. I know this is a great hobby but . . .

Anyway, I've just found out you can use M42 screw mount lenses, to infinity, on Canon EOS, i.e., 5DMkIII.

Another thing. Just been to dentist, had terrible toothache in rear molar for past week. He can't fill it, pull it out and it's beyond root canal. What does this mean?

I just try to be happy with what I am shooting, which for the last 9 or 10 years has been an APS-C camera. Definitely gives me a lot more pleasure than thinking about all the photos I could have taken, if Pentax had just had the gear. And truthfully, to this point I have saved quite a bit of money by not having full frame. If Pentax comes out with full frame for 2500, then I will have a struggle seeing if I really need it/can afford it (and the full frame glass it would require).

Never mind all that. What's "beyond root canal"?

This is getting painful and now I have to wait two weeks for an appointment to "discuss the options". WTF?!!!

We British have never been known for our good teeth.
