No way.
Pentax has NEVER got into a deal with Sigma afaik. Not even a blueprint. It isn't a reason but it is background nonetheless.
Pentax has always been (till now?) an optics company also producing camera, not the opposite. Your suggestion would make Pentax primarily a camera maker (not that they do it badly....). I would be VERY surprised if they'd inked such a deal.

I think this is way overstating the help offered by computers. It only calculates, it doesn't designs and doesn't chose between compromises. Also, modern designs are way more complex than old school designs.

If we were talking Takumars 50mm, I might agree. Not in this context.

It is completely new designs so unless they license 3rd party designs they have to do it from zero.

Agreed Kunzite but that being said and neglecting naysayers, trying to be objective: it is clear that Kmount going 24x36 only strengthens the attractivity of a Full Frame 645.
That is all theory though neglecting financial and time constraints from RI.

Sure but Hoya didnt care about the image business, unless Pair is useful for endoscope Imaging? (Lol, imagine that.... athmospheric interferences )

That's what I thought, thanks for looking up the details.
So Theta has nothing to do with RI.

Yeah, Pentax always were fan of Fish-eye zooms.
A bit original I reckon.

If Iremener correctly, my LX3 has exactly the same range: it's a but of a mixed bag, way more versatile than fixed but could be quite more versatile too.

Still, if fitted with EVF as previous GX serie, it would be a very nice addition.

Agreed although a longer zoom to match the one DFA 'kit' would be nice.
Once F/2.8 is well built, F/4 zooms still would be nice additions as well as modern but lower cost primes.

But not right now.

Mmm sometimes I wish some image wouldn't have been taken or some sound not recorded so I don't fully agree but from the user perspective I get your point.

Is internet traffic representative of the use we make of device in completely different activities?
I hear you and have no reason to doubt what you wrote but I'm not sure about the connection to the PC market (which is pretty mature).
Smartphone are changed every year or two by most people. PC no way. Less money to be made and no real novelties. Sure.
But does that mean people use more mobile device as for photography/videography treatment?

Well faking views on YouTube and the like is as easy as paying 5$ to obscure Chinese who will generate those for you.

Yet marketshare is often a very bad indicator.

Whatever the marketshare, as long as the brand makes adequate money in it's intended market.
The point is not to serve a DSLR to everyone in this world babies included.
The point is to make money or at least not lose money. Many here tends to forget that.
