Anyone else tiring of all of these new panic threads that keep popping up due to the FF announcement? Threads like:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/6-pentax-dslr-discussion/288045-top-line-...last-line.html

and

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/10-pentax-slr-lens-discussion/288057-will...rop-glass.html
How about we start one like " Will you pee on your K-3 once you get a full frame?" Or maybe spit on it for those more cultured.

Or "Will you smash your APS_c glass in a crusher once you get a Full Frame?" I've never heard a lens really 'pop'.

Or how about "FDA 70-200, or Tamron 70-200, 31 ltd and 77 ltd - what is more useful?"

Or "Man beats off bear trying to steal his lunch with Pentax 150-450mm lens." He says "I would have used a rock but this feels more substantial, the build quality is really solid. The bear backed off as soon as he saw it coming."

I see lots of possibilities for new threads.

I'm liking the posts about if it will have a flash on it or if it will come with a kit lens and people are all "WHAT!? I AM PROFESSIONAL PHOTO MAKER! I NO NEED KIT LENS OR FLASH. CAMERA WILL BE RUINED EEF HAVE INCLUDED! *spits*"

Its like... seriously? You really want Pentax to fail out of the gate because only high end pros could possibly want this thing?

I'm dumbfounded by the fact that after finally getting confirmation of a FF, 2 high-end FF lenses, and the K-S2, the most active thread is the one on the K-S2.

Leave it to Pentax to steal their own thunder.

Ohh yeah, the FF panic threads. The FF lens panic threads. The complaining about FF lens pricing panic threads. I'm glad I'm already good on my lenses, of course if that new long one would have went to 600mm I'd have had to preorder it at that price with the features it has.

Ohh, and as we all know:

It'd better be bulletproof, feature an internal whisky flask, enable us to communicate with spirits and cure cancer. Otherwise Pentax is ... wait for it ... DOOOMED!

We should take some of the features that the K3 has and make comments saying "I heard the new FF won't have *feature*"

Or, better yet. Make up new features that no camera has and say "I heard the new FF will have *transoptic aberation mode*.
