Well, my Sigma 50 macro will do nicely, Rikenon manual lenses are in place from 28 to 150mm - my DA55-300 seems (edit: Not) to work reasonably well according to the test thread. Lenses will be my least worry about going FF though, as a spare $2k does not seem handy for the mythical body. Better/worse yet I really like the K-5 form factor and do not plan to move up the cubic-inch scale. I'll cheer for ya from the sidelines though!

Ca we just call it Pentax and get on with life? These hyphenated retardities are idiotic.
Agree... shoulda been the currently correct title, "Pentax Ricoh" (no hyphen...). Plus, since the FF buzz has been officially denied, comments related to FF are just idle speculation... nothing to take seriously, or act on... just clean fun...

Cheers...

Well I'll have to be a 100% prime shooter and I'll have to get a wide angle.

Realistically I'm still much further behind than my lens collection and not planning to go FF for the time being even if a "real K-3" does indeed drop out of the sky this year.

Totally ready.
I won't be getting rid of the DA15, DA21 or the Sigma17-50 in a hurry though; I won't be ditching my K-01 or K-5 even if a full frame materialises.

Apart from my Tamron 17-50-2.8 (which vignettes heavily on my film bodies) and the 2 DA-kit lenses, all my other lenses are full-frame compatable... If I'm actually able to get any work upon graduation from uni then I fully intend to foray into Pentax's Full-Frame adventure...

There was a lot of research done on this and each lens was rated on FF compatibility.
Thank you, abacus07. Do you have a link or such as that information would be good to know.

By the way, I guess you could tell from my response that I'm in the "not even close" category!

When these threads come up I hold out hope that Pentax will come out with FF, though I believe we have been told (or have we?) that FF won't happen for the foreseeable future with Pentax.

jimr-pdx linked it at the top of page 2. I'm still in the buying lenses phase. I would rather have a DA*300 and FA77 before I bought a FF camera. I would also either keep my DA15 and my K-5 or get a K-01 (or successor) since I need a relatively light setup. A FF body would be a luxury that I would only get if I had extra money available which I might have in a year. And I could reasonably justify for work, which I might be able to in a year.

I'm completely ready for it - ready to completely ignore it and continue to use my much smaller and less expensive APS-C bodies and lenses with no difference in quality that 99.999999% of the world would ever see. Of course, if my photography depended on extreme shallow DOF at wide angles I might feel differently, but like most of the world, that doesn't apply to me.

Not one of my Pentax lenses is incapable of full frame. However it is unlikely I will go FF or at least not for the first or maybe even the second generation and only if it is smaller than a D200 as that was my only dslr for several years and no desire for one that large anymore. My wife's main lens is the 16-45 followed by the 10-20 so she is not but then she still shoots K10D. What I would like to see is that as soon as Pentax announces FF the price of a used 15DA crashes and then I will buy one. And maybe my 17-28FE will be easy to sell at that point as well.

More to the point is I thought more people commented on Pentax not being ready lens wise.
