the preview build-in monitor?
to get the best possibly quality of the reproduction , they wouldn't be able to use existing colour one?

The medium format is pretty dead , at least from my perspective , I will not be buying one ever.
The FF is not far behind although I will keep and enjoy K-1/1ll & α7lll but will not be purchasing any more FF camera bodies.
The APS-C has still very long prosperous way in front of it , I love superb K-3lll and X-T4 with Zfc not far behind ( lack of IBIS /SR is rather disappointing ).
The Silver/Black X-T4 , Zfc and MX-1 look so happy together.
Future?

The invasion of AI into in camera and post processing is frightening , soon we will not know what is real and what is not.
And then we have smart phones / drones , iPhone 13 is insanely clever and capable.
Will we really need skillful photographers in the near future any more?

I love that lens , goes well with FF K-1's,
with Pentax-F AF 1.7x teleconverter gives you impressive compact 340mm rig.

I took some photos with DA*200+K-1 for someone from this forum ( can not remember who ) about 4 years ago, all was fine.

DA*200 also works well with Pentax-F 1.7x AF Teleconverter on FF bodies.

the DFA 21 is already happening so not much point to include it in "Prototypes / Planned / forecasted" list.
for me personally the compactness / size is being more and more important so:
FDA* 24-105/24-70 F4
and perhaps something like new excellent FE ( FF) Sony 28-60 retractible.

Heie - View Profile - PentaxForums.com

We had a member , a while ago , who was serving in Afganistan and Germany.
He was regularly showering and filming various Pentax gear , as I can remember it was K-7 + many lenses.
Unfortunately he is not active any more.
Anyone has any , still active , links to his hilarious clips?

The only way to go , I use the Pentax M42 to PK adapters only.
The bag on the left is for Lens Cap ( 31521 ) but the adapter in the real thing.

The Tamron 18-200 is old , old coating not a very good option.
The DA 18-250 ( Tamron made , so no Quick Shift , with Pentax coating ) is still very good performer , I have one since new and still enjoy it.
There were two different versions of Sigma 18-250 .
The latest one , much smaller ( 62mm filter , physically identical to DA18-250 ) , no OS , better macro , I have one since new and still enjoy it.
The Sigma 18-300 Contemporary Macro - I have one since new ,very capable performer , a bit large/heavy for my liking.
The DA 18-270 ( Tamron made , so no Quick Shift , with Pentax coating ) nice performer , still available in Australia, I have one since new and still enjoy it.
The Sigma 18-200 Contemporary Macro , I do not have one , apparently good performer , still available new with Pentax mount.

I purchased mine brand new in Japan many years ago.
Newer looked into the manual , probably in Japanese only.
I used it with many lenses.
Great , very enjoyable apparatus.

This marvellous concept is now being copied by Fotodiox , Megadap , Monster and others in theirs AF smart mount's adapters.

My 5 years old Sony Power Bank ( 5V 1.5A 3000 mAh ) works well with Nikon Zfc , Fuji X-T4 and Sony A7lll,
but not working with K-3lll - I haven't tried all my USB-C leads.
