Pentax has done a very good job with the K-3. I am looking forward to the reviews and tests.

I just wish Pentax had released a new higher end lens to go with its flagship body. Even if it was a DA* 55mm F/1.4 with new HD coatings and a faster SDM-II lens motor. Or they could have released new FA LTD glass with the HD coating like they did with the DA LTD line.

A 35/1.4 or faster lens would be nice. It's quite inexplicable that they haven't released a fast standard lens for their APS-C cameras. It's only been 10 years now....

Always remember, whenever you declare someone the dumbest person on Earth, someone else will stare at their screen intently, cross their arms and say ‘Challenge accepted’.

Yes.  I hope they are watching Fuji and taking notes.  The new 14mm F/2.8 and 23mm F/1.4 are fantastic lenses that are really needed in the Pentax line-up.  The current DA 14mm is not a very impressive lens and the DA 21mm while decent for the price, doesn't fill the need.

I hope Pentax has big plans.
