The small player entering a direct fight with the heavyweight ones is one of the worse strategies to follow.
You want mirrorless, and that's fine. But don't expect Pentax to "fix" mirrorless for you.

It would brick the camera - different hardware - you could check if the firmware is recognized by the camera but if it is, don't proceed further.

Who says they work to solve the production challenges?
Their standard might be different than Ricoh Imaging's.

Thanks for your impressions; reasonable as always.
Was it faster than the usual Pentax lens? From Pentaxforums' Youtube video, I believe it should be... not to PLM level though.

Solving the lens-side of the AF equation takes more time than the camera side - as shown by the screw drive comments above ;)
When the camera with fast AF will be released, they'd better have as many fast AF lenses on the market as possible.

Don't confuse having limited resources with disrespect.
From what I see, they're supporting cameras that already work with Image Transmitter 2 and Image Sync.

It's definitely faster, but nowhere near the PLM. I'd put it in the same league as the Nikon's 200-500, if you know that lens.
Another advantage is that it has a focus limiter. With the DA* (I had the 60-250), once you lost the subject and the lens started hunting it was game over. Not so with the 150-450.

You know, freedom of speech doesn't mean one could spill as much nonsense as he want with impunity.

If they'd made you a camera resistant to -20C, you'd whack it with a hammer then complain.
Your 'criticism' is bashing. Stop it.

And FTR it's us, their user base, who made them move forward. It's because of us that they made the K-1. The whiners have no contribution.

The 55-300 RE PLM is faster ;) (but doesn't have to drive the D FA*'s huge focus group, nor offer f/1.4 precision)

BS. The lens is less expensive than a K-1 body, or a D FA* 70-200, or a D FA 150-450. We're buying those.

It's not a bad price.
This lens is more than a mere 50mm f/1.4; it's their first truly high-end prime in a while, it's Pentax getting back to the game. The price to be paid is also the price of having Pentax' first ring-type SDM.

So once again you're saying that you're not willing to pay for a Pentax even Sigma prices. Who cares? Others will buy it.

There are no similarities between the D FA* 70-200 f/2.8 and the Tamron G2. Outside of them being 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses, that is.
There are no similarities between the D FA 150-450mm and the Tamron... wait, there's no similar Tamron whatsoever. Yet you included that lens in your fake list.

Because you're unwilling to pay a fair price for such a high-end lens.

Wrong. The D FA* 70-200 and the D FA 150-450 are Pentax.
