No full-frame -- no new mirrorless ...

Is everyone happy with that roadmap?

Yes, because i won't be able to afford the K1 FF so soon after getting the 560mm this fall!

I doubt you'll be able to afford a car... insurance... GROCERIES??? after paying for that 560!

Just don't tell my wife that i'll be selling her car for it!

Then again, if it truly IS an F5.6 lens, it might not be TOO pricey! F4, well, the F4 600 used to sell in the $7,000 range, I think, didn't it? I think it's still that much, USED, when and if you can get one -- at least that's the gist I get from forum lens guru Ron.

My guess is around 3000 usd/euro. If i recall well, Ron agrees. If its more it will compete too much with the Sigma 500 f/4.5 and used Canikon 500/600 f/4s. I think Pentax knows they have no chance there.

As for the legendary prices of used 250-600s, 600 f/4s, and other legendary glass... let me just say that it's cheaper to go "dual system" with new Canikon equipment...
