The DA* 200/2.8 is already FF.

It is on my desk right here and I'm heading off to see what the local penguins are up to. Yesterday, when I was without a camera, one was putting on quite a show.


Can't wait to get this lens on my new FF when it finally happens, although it is well worth having on an APS-C.

That's a common judgement but as long as we don't know how the FF camera will handle the DA* (non-DFA) lenses, we can't be sure.

If you want the full-frame Limiteds to be WR, they won't be nearly as small. Pentax should just release some sealed D FA* primes with fast F1.4 apertures since such lenses are missing in the lineup to begin with.
Oh yes!
Keep the FA limiteds as they are and give me a 24/1.4 and a 135/1.8 :-)

And don't mind if I'd use these on APS-C :-)

What would really do my head in is if iconic lenses like the 31,43 and 77 were not full frame compatible with shake reduction on, or "fully on".
I think the first think they have to do is to check if the FF is fully compatible with the three amigos, those are their flagship lens !

If I was Ricoh I'd sort of be happy if the old FA's weren't FF compatible with SR.....certainly would help new lens sales....I'd also have hinted at this in the lead up to the FF release......(which they have...haven't they?).

I expect the new FF to service 3 lens sub groups.....APSC, Legacy FF (both of these with some compromises) and new DFA Lenses......
If Ricoh should decide to cripple the FAs in this manner, then they lose one key Pentax advantage over Canikon and when that time comes, then I just *might* keep my current Pentax gears, and consider getting an FF Nikon or heaven forbid, Sony, to satisfy the FF lust. There'll be no point buying two versions of the Limited just to ensure stabilization, and I might as well venture beyond the Pentax land.

Keeping them full time on, will not make sense, since this may prove problematic when mounted on a -pod.

You like them short and wide, I see. (And judging by at least one focal length, with a possible eye to APS-C use.)

In reply to OP,

1) 24/2.4 (Seeing these numbers embossed on the lens body will be a joy )
2) 85/1.4 (What else?)
3) 50/1.2 (Yes!!!!-- That'll show 'em canikon guys!)

You're referring to the 15mm, I think? I had the pleasure of using a friends Heliar 15mm on my A7r a few months ago. Loved everything about it, it's like using the 8mm end of the Sigma 8-16 but without the distortion in the borders.

Ok, more realistic then:
DFA 15mm F4

First of all the new tres amigos: DFA 31, 43 and 77; all with DC, WR, quick shift and 9 circular aperture blades.
Then other three DFA* with very fast aperture 24 f/2, 50 f/1.4 (a new version of the f/1.2 will be a smash hit) and 85 f/1.4

Fingers crossed

Since I really doubt that there will be a new Pentax shift-lens, at least for awhile, my number one wish would be a D FA 20mm f/4 Limited (pancake with DC if possible) for architecture, streetphotography and landscapes

D FA* 135mm f/2 with DC for potraits (and streetphotography?)

D FA* 500mm f/4 with a proper (= reliable, blazingly fast and accurate) SDM along with all the other goodies for birding
