Maybe an overlay with only the focus peaking highlights is possible technically. It would be nice to have and be a good combination of old and new tech :)

In this bright image it seems to be a feature on each side of the logo surface. I dont recognize this from any Pentax camera.

Rumor: Pentax FF new Limited lenses coming soon?

And don't forget the 200/4 macro! That could bring some hard core Pentaxians that have already left back to the brand :)

When looking at the road map I note that no FF lenses have got the HD coating. It can be a good or a bad sign depending on your mood :D

Yes, but will they need another naming of the true FF compatible lenses, i.e. releasing a FF? :)

If we try to be positive about FF: The two longer lenses is not called "DA" while the wide is "DA wide zoom". A D-FA naming later on when the mighty FF camera comes?

If a FF will come, I expect the most popular lenses to be presented at the same time. There is no money in introducing a camera without lenses and every third party lens sold is a loss if a similar lens later on will be made by Pentax.

Hi,
Any additional information about this lens? If I remember correctly you were about to handle this lens (or prototype) for some time ago :)

My guess would be the AF from K-5 II, 24mp, flu card support, a rubber patch for the right thumb and something video related :)

Is there no patent found in this ~135-380 range?
There seems to be lots of patents that never finds its way into real products but too often it's the other way around :(

Thanks. Any other signs of FF? You don't have to be precise but I'm thinking classical FL like 24-70 etc. that don't make sense on a apsc.
The lack of FA ltd update is worrying since they would be much needed high margin products together with a FF cam. :(

So you mean that while Pentax makes probably the best aps-c camera on the market it is impossible for them to make a competitive FF? :eek:

Imo, FF price is coming down which reduces the possibility to make a high margin aps-c cameras. I see two ways to gain money in the future, a FF that they can sell for more and/or a mirrorless line that is cheaper to manufacture.

Easier than to attact other brand users with an aps-c in the same price range as their current brand offers FF.

Looks like a nice feature/thing! I hope PF make some kind of review with a video that shows how this works in the future :)

I have no experience with tethering on other brands so I must ask - what features are unique with this flu card compared to the competion?

Three rumors of new Ricoh Pentax products in CP+ 2014

I also agree. It would limit the use of the green button for me and make Pentax less special compared to other brands.
Retro cameras like the new Fuji is beautiful to look at though and is a great option in the retro genre :)

Until I see a beautiful k-mount retro camera I'm convinced that it has to be mirrorless to keep the bulkiness low. :)

I also like asahi mans comment in the dpr tread:
:)

Wouldn't it be great if the converter had a o-ring on the lens mount surface? It would make all old lenses semi-WR.

I agree. I don't know about the reability of the source but IF someone asked me before reading this thread I would guess that the updated FA ltds would include QS, WR, DC while not having a aperture ring. For me, these lenses would represent the best Pentax can do regarding lenses.

Absolutely, I agree. But it is not the fact the OP is considering another brand that gets people going here, it is the strange reasons presented. :)

1. This is exactly why you have the AF button. Use it!
Btw, isn't your focus of the viewfinder when you dig into the menus of the glorios D3200 when switching AF -- MF?? :D

2. The AF is much better now then in the K20D. The DR of D3200 is similar to modern pentax entry level models. Are you still comparing to the old K20D?? :lol:

3. Nikon adds hdmi and wifi to their entry level model while pentax adds (quoted from earlier in the thread):

Wow, got to admire what the D3200 offers :D

4. At the time of the K20D a video mode was not common in cameras. The D90 from that time had film capacity but it was 2008 and it is 2013 now for the most of us. You should try it. ;)

Good to read, thanks!


Anone else noting that the top 10 list has 4 FF bodies in it, including the more upmarket 5D III and D800 and just not the low end FF? I don't buy the "FF only has 5% market share" stuff some people spread here.
