I am really content with the announcement. The fun part is now: Pentax is making real $$ with me ... I will get the FF cam as well as the K3 to upgrade my K5s, and at least the 150-400 this year, maybe even the 70-200 but otherwise in 2016 ;-)
As much as I like the small primes, I don't mind fat workhorses that just deliver, and that is what I am expecting especially from the 70-200.

Glad to see, like in that press release pic, that my FA 31 Ltd will work on it!

I'm seeing more activity here today than I did when the daily forum giveaway thing was going on. Both times.

If you pre-order one now we'll give you an extra 50mm for free!

I would have thought they would have put RICOH on top.

Time to start saving. I think I may be a two system guy for a little while though until Pentax releases a 135mm fast prime.

Oh wow, oh wow! They did it! They actually did it! Haha!

This could be my next camera after I exhaust my recently purchased K-3.

Go Ricoh!

Look closely at the high-res photo. The PENTAX name is on a sticker. Probably says RICOH under it. They will sell these official PENTAX stickers as an accessory at the Pentax Webstore for only $9.99. But they'll be out of stock for months at a time. People will turn to ebay for Chinese knockoff stickers.
