No, you are talking about Sigma cameras and their insigificance in photomarket. I was only mentioning an interesting, but super heavy 50 mm prime. And of course, it's always entertaining to see the only Pentax user in this forum defending "his" brand against everything which looks even remotely like a bit of critique. Acting like a berserk, no sense of humor at all and jumping into rampage mode at lighting speed. "Hating" Pentax? Are you insane, man? This brand IS too insignificant to activate any kind of hate. Regret or pity, yes, but hate? For what? For being late to all parties?

And about which Leica DSLR MF are you having fantasies? No, spare your time. There's no Leica MF DSLR in production and the R9 was FF
Hmm... you said "Even Sigma as the least important camera manufacturer managed to come up with two mirrorless types.". Did you forget that?

Wow, you were saying something about "rampage mode"? That's not how you convince people that you don't hate Wink

I'm talking about the Leica S, of course.

The waiting game can be pretty tiresome at times. And the countless attacks from bored people with nothing better to do Wink

Is this a discussion about Pentax' distant past?

I do see things in perspective, better than you I'd say - and it's not your perspective (which is what you really want, right?).
You're talking about things that started happening before Hoya, even before there was a Pentax Corporation. If anything, with products like the D FA* 50mm f/1.4 Ricoh is trying to recapture part of the past glory.

Yes. It's clearly spelled by the D FA* 50mm f/1.4.

No, they weren't even once. Get your history right, please.
They were almost killed by a hostile takeover, though.
