That''s for April fool's....

I suspect we'll be seeing a simple / lightweight / economical FF dslr from Pentax pretty soon, before the K1iii. And before the K3iii as well.

I bet it will also have a touch-screen.

It will be styled like the KP and will be perfect for the FA Limiteds.

And now my crystal ball is all misty again...

If it also gets a big video upgrade (4K, AF) i might be tempted.

It makes zero sense to design any light K1.. you can buy barely used K1 for 1/2 price and still these are offered for weeks and nobody wants them.

Creating another fail is last thing Ricoh need.

What a surprise about cameras...but I am sure this tantalizing mysterious image will increase Pentax market share dramatically.

From my quick google search, that appears to be the Quickshift Focus System

So long or short rather than 300mm?

Re: K1 Mark III?

My guess is DFA 50-250 f/4 constant aperture zoom for full frame, probably replacing the nearly full-frame capable DA 60-250.

It's a lens they need to have in their full frame lineup for sure. Good compromise between having a 70-200 and a 100-300 in the lineup. Cropping gets you to 300 without much image quality loss on a K1, if 250 is sharp enough that is.

Looked at with the loupe, that is definitely a x50, so at least 50-150, I suspect you are right 50-250 f4 would be nice, especially if it is at least as good optically as the 60-250 (and has a decent focus motor).

Bingo,you are right

There is no real picture about this lens and no information about the new Bodys.

Real Information are maybe late summer available.

There will come a medium class 50 / 70-300 ,but still no exactly schedule or real information about this.

Next lens are 85 and 70-200.

Best regards

It seems that marketing leaders listen and that they finally decided to remove all those various DA55-300 and bring one single modern yet compact 50-300 (4-5.6?) usable both for APS-C and FF. It will also be something, that other mounts do not have. Pentax must offer somethin special to survive. Copying all those 70-300 that competitors have won't be the right choice.

But anyway, priority should be K3 successor at all cost... until rest of loyalist left. Then K70 replacement.

FF can wait, it is just hair thin market share.

Most of the loyalists have left already, the super loyalist that remained will gladly take whatever Ricoh slowly and incrementally and finally brings out. Most of the discussions here are now mostly irrelevant, because a) Ricoh does not read or listen b) the super loyalists will take whatever it is, no need to be competitive with rest of the market.
