But perhaps they also have in development a digital version of something like the very nice FA 24-90, or some other normal zoom.

Anyway, I wouldn't consider lack of lenses to be a reason not to bring out a FF camera.

Yeah, all they really need right away is a pair of zooms, standard and tele.  Preferably, pro-grade f2.8 zooms.  Cheaper slow zooms can come later.  Then, one good wide prime, like 20mm.  The rest can take its time.

Q with 02 zoom and Nikkor 180/2.8 ED for birding
K10D, Sig 17-70, DA 55-300, FA 50/1.4 "billy bass"
discards: DA 50-200 "zipper", F 100-300, Sigma 135-400 "piglet", M 400/5.6 "the Great Truncheon"

The FA 20 F2.8 is a very nice lens, about equal optically to the DA 21. A few years ago, the old version of Photodo rated it better than the 20/2.8 lenses from N and C. Only the Zeiss was superior.
