My budget for FF..........

So with just some time to go before the landing of the real FF we can discuss the budget......

How much would you invest over the coming 12 months (after launch of the FF) on camera body('s) and lenses?

This is just about investing in a Pentax FF!!!!!

Umm, we need option $0, so we can know how many of us are there and, maybe, I don't know, form a union.

Well zero $ is also well under a thousend, but maybe you would like a new cable to connect your old camera to a computer at home.

There should have been a no investment option.

I already invested $0-1000. I bought a K-mount Lens Turbo for my a6000. That is my only intended expenditure on FF in the foreseeable future. I prefer the size and price of APS-C.

I misread that as unicorn. Fitting, since this FF is mythical until there's a real product.

It's about the not yet excisting Pentax FF body and lenses (some of those lenses are already in shops like the FA line).

Does it count if you buy an old M42 lens with no intention of using it on a FF body?

I'm still saving for my 645D. At the current rate the 645Z will likely be discontinued by the time I get there.

I would wait for reviews and the price to go down a little either way. Lately Pentax has this habit of sending out products at a too-high price, then panicking when they don't sell as well as expected.

As long as the FF specs are not known, I abstain from voting. Should the new camera be 36 MPx or less, I won't be interested.

I could see my self spending 2-3000$(€). But not at once. Body first, then some lens. I still need to buy so many other stuff like flashes, o-gps, great tripod...

And I won't be first one to buy it.
