Pinhole lens being produced in K-mount on Kickstarter

While I am sick of the "most basic fundamental" experience, "dynamic focal length", "pro X" marketing blah blah blah, I might get one for the sake of encouraging people to release K-mount accessories.

Will Pentax ever be able to get a stellar review of it's focusing speed?

Let's put things in perspective. You have read the same complaint over the last 10+ years, yet the K-1 AF is so much better than the K10D AF.
The current Pentax technology is probably behind the top pro-DSLR ones but it's a wonder compared to the rustic focusing systems found in the entry level cameras of other manufacturers.

My take, especially regarding the 645 format,: the search for thin dof, as an aesthetic choice, is rather new. Wide aperture was for low light environment.

The company you are looking for is PM2S.
If you are in Paris, do stop by "La Boutique Pentax".

In my experience, this would work if you are using an APS-C camera. With the K-1, you’ll get vignetting.

It was made for the Japanese market and to the taste of Japanese camera collectors. And it made lots of sense for this market.

I got the chance to take some pictures of the "Piton de la Fournaise" volcano yesterday evening. The eruption stopped this morning. Lucky me.

Ricoh lens re coating service!

I am not aware of Sigma recoating lenses.
As far as I know, it would be a logistical nightmare. On top of the difficulties with the coating itself, there would be issues with the heavy metals used on glass and soldering as well.

Will Ricoh Make A "FULL FRAME GR" Camera In The Near Future?

I suspect the electronics would be bigger, the heatsink too, possibly a bigger battery would be needed too.
The couple lens/sensor should be tailored ($$) to remain small. This architecture of electronic sensors makes them quite different from film.

Oh God, the price, the size! The beauty of the GR lies in the combination of small size, superb handling and excellent image quality. This combination commands a premium price that a niche market is ready to pay.
Edit: and I own a GR.
