Rumours of HD Pentax-D FA 50-300mm f/4.5-5.6/6.3

i think you and sony are agreeing with me. sony released a 35(2.8) and 55, then the 70-200f4, then the 25, 90, 85, 50, 35(1.4), then the 70-300. like i said, i'd rather have pentax focus their limited resources... not on redundancy. maybe it will be 3 years before we see a 50/70-300 and a bunch of ff primes will appear in the mean time.

when i say consumerish? (note question mark :D ) i mean not a top level lens... not that the 70-200 won't be good. the 150-450 isn't a * lens and it's awesome. as for price... 1200 sound too close to the dfa* 70-200. i'll be surprised if it was over 1K.

yeah, i understand that... but i don't understand offereing a consumer lens on an $1800 camera before making the missing primes available. maybe they're making more money on the aspc plm lens vs the ff dfa* 50? or maybe they'll drop a bunch of lenses at once?

they already have top tier fast wa ff primes, they already have 85, 135, etc... AND 3rd party options. pentax does not. i rather have them focus their limited resources... not on redundancy.

using AF 1.4x TC for auto-focus manual lenses?

it's focus assist... lens has to be within a reasonable range manually. it will not focus from minimum - infinity by itself.

if your lenses are ok at 100% on a k-3, then they'll be ok on a 60mp full frame. fuji uses even smaller pixel pitch for their 26mp xt-3.

i'll never understand grips... (some) camera companies work so hard to make as tight and small a package as possible, and then you go and screw a brick to it . i have to lay flat on the ground sometimes to get the camera low enough... a grip makes that impossible.

the da*55 does well on extension tubes, but needs aperture contacts, so i never really use it that way... but i could post results of it vs. the dfa50mm macro if anyone's really interested. i'd love to try the new dfa1.4 as a macro lens, but no kaf4 extension tubes exist. pentax hasn't updated their extension tubes since 1979 or something. in general, pentax lenses aren't as diffraction limited as, say, the canon mp-e 65mm 1x-5x i tested... until you get to 3:1 or so, then you need a more open aperture and stacking to stay sharp.
