I would mount whichever lens is closest to me at the time, and probably end up taking a picture of total darkness because I'd forget to remove the lens cap.

Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro, and whatever of interest I can find in my garden at the time (insect, spider, flower). [My wife refuses to let me take pictures of her ... presumably in case I capture her soul.]
As mythical as the Pentax FF seems to be, it just might.

The M 50/1.4, the lens that came on my MX that was the beginning of my love for Pentax. As for subject, that would have be my family's dogs

Why release new lenses when there are so many good ones out there now? Ricoh will have to understand the competition of legacy glass when they start thinking about new releases.
They also might re-release legacy glass with AF and WR along with improved coatings - Personally I think the 50mm f/1.2* and FA*200mm f/4 ED macro would be two lenses that would be worthy candidates for this, the 50mm f/1.2 suffers from ghosting rather badly on digital - but other than that optically speaking it is one of the best 50mm lenses I have ever worked with. The FA*200mm f/4 ED macro is easily the best 200mm macro lens on the planet. I think equipping these lenses with modern lens construction, Aero bright II, WR sealing and perhaps DC/screwdrive** focusing mechanism would be a way to go.

* Even Nikon doesn't have a single current native-F mount f/1.2 lens in their line up - this would irritate the nikon crowd considerably, as the best f/1.2 lens Nikkor has is the 58mm f/1.2 noct-nikkor which sells on the second hand market for prices upwards of $3500
**there is just enough space near the rear element of the A/K 50mm f/1.2 lenses for the AF contacts, using screwdrive AF would eliminate the concern of clearing the rear element.

Probably the only lens I will have left at that point will be a Sears MC 50mm f2.0..........Had to sell off everything else to go Pentax FF !
Wouldn't even have that lens but it wasn't really worth the $13 bucks I could get for it on Ebay to even bother listing it !
Guess it will be my Legacy Prime for quite a while.......lol

That's tempting....I still have mine. I couldn't afford the MX but worked all summer to buy the ME Super. Great memories.
I don't have my first M-50/1.7 since I sold it with the MX to fund my LX 32 years ago... but I bought it again some 15 years ago, and later inherited my father's ME Super with the M 50/1.7. My wife has a ME Super too. I love those cameras, they both work flawlessly while my LX is starting to show sticky mirror problems.

It would be a tie between my FA 77 or the Tamron 180/2.5 SP. Then would come the A 50/1.2 and K28/2 followed by the F 28/2.8.

Wow, the 77 and 180 before the 50/1.2. I'd love to see the 1.2 DoF on the FF.

Strongly of the opinion that these two should be a priority, brilliant lenses that would bring people to Pentax as a system.

Of course, we are yet to see what Pentax has planned for the glaring 24-70mm f2.8 D-FA* hole in its line-up. (Dare I hope that this will go wider than 24mm, in the same way that the 16-50 does with the usual 18-50 range?).

So they are not the number 1 priority, but let's just say these should definitely happen! :O)
