Re: Full text of the interview is here.

Pentax would have no hesitation bringing out a FF camera with few or no lenses. They have done it before. The *ist D came out several months before the first DA lens, the 16-45, appeared. At first they marketed it with the FAJ 18-35.

Plus, there are already several FF lenses available--the limiteds, the 50 F1.4 (perhaps this is why they have kept it in production), and the DFA lenses.

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.
