Yes and the DA 50 1.8 is not as good as FA 50 f1.4 which is not nearly as good as D-FA* 50/1.4 and all of them are currently being offered by the same manufacturer.

I do not prefer darker lensin general but in case of this wide angle zoom I would trade 2.8 aperture on wide end for extra 1-2 mm. Just personal preference for wide angle. Also I would be really happy with 15-30 f5.6 if it could take normal filters and be reasonably small but with very good sharpness across the frame. Probably all this will end with purchasing D-FA 15-30 f2.8 as there are no alternatives for this wide angle zoom for Pentax K-1. It is sharp, bright and covers 15-30 range. I would trade "bright" for size and filter thread if there would be this option available.

Tamron is modern and quite good performer and there is no similar lens in Pentax line. OEM standards means? DFA 15-30, 24-70, 70-210 are also Tamron lenses with Pentax tweaks.

It would be nice to see Pentax version of Tamron 17-35 mm f2.8-4.0 Di OSD but I would still prefer 1-2 mm wider and constant f4 lens.

Same here. 15-30 f/4 or even f/5.6 with very good sharpness across the frame (yes corners too) is on the top of my list. If it wont happen this year I will probably buy 15-30/2.8.

New information about new flagship's selling date

I am not in the market now, but I will probably be looking for new FF camera - better AF, bigger buffer, faster processing to card - in 12 to 18 months. I try to buy gear after at least a year after the release date - because the price is better and cameras and lenses are reviewed and tested. So Would be perfect to see new FF body this year, but it is highly, highly unlikely.

If my camera names were RICOH K-1 and RICOH K-70 they would work exactly the same.

If I would plan to own only one body than fixed screen would be a no go for me. But cameras like any other tools are made for different tasks, there will never be one that is the best in everything.

I think (pure speculation) that decision has been made by Ricoh. Just not revealed yet.

Ricoh's financial results for Q3: improved Smart Vision's earnings
Posted By taktoon

Last releases by Pentax (at least for FF) are: 35HD and 10-17 HD fisheye and now 70-210 (in fact Tamron lens tweaked by Pentax - I do not have anything against that) these are products that needed very minimal effort from RICOH. We have also 'K-new' under the glass but recent post by OoKU said that it can be released later than this summer. There is no new FF camera on the table, not even a rumour. For me it is not enough. I am not going to sell my K-1, k-70 or lenses as they work just fine for 75% of my needs but my needs are not constant (next year I am planing to shoot more events and video). Have to say I would be very happy to see MILC K-1 successor in any mount with short registration distance;)

Thank You.
The AF in OVF is OK, not great but sufficient. But as recently my son started to move around the floor (he will be nine months old this Saturday) I use more and more LV with face recognition and great lunar lander screen with the camera close to the ground. I like this solution a lot. If it worked a bit faster and in continuous AF mode it would be a real joy to use. I hope to see more'mirrorless' features in future Pentax cameras.

Pentax March 2020 Interview Questions (formerly CP+)
Posted By taktoon

1) Do You plan to release 1.8 'not as perfect' primes for FF. (Maybe in cooperation with Tamron)
2) Do You plan to release more f/4 zooms for FF (wide angle and standard).
3) When can we expect new FF body/bodies? What are the main improvements over K-1/K-1II that we can expect (not the very specific more like general direction). Will it still be DSLR?
4) Why not to develop more Pentax versions of best Tamron (or Sigma) lenses?
5) Do You consider going into mirrorless world with Pentax/Ricoh products - MILC body is cheaper to develop and produce, it takes less time and You already produce great GR III?. Developing new lens lineup from scratch is probably the most difficult part, but using existing mount (if it is an option) or making them with cooperation with Tamron/Sigma could be very interesting. Adding to this for example 3-5 new FF limited lenses (1.8 -2.8 aperture, wr and silent focus) could be interesting idea.
Please just translate the questions with the more polite Japanese style;)

I waited so long for replacement for my da* 16-50 that I managed to become a father. Finally I bought dfa 24-70 and k-1.

There was once a rumour that they are thinking about joining L mount. For me it would be interesting. On one side video oriented Panasonic and for stills Ricoh/Pentax with smart K-L adapter at the begining. It is the next letter in the alphabet ;)
