I don't think that lens ever came to being unfortunately. I think the only thing is pentax 150-450mm

K3 II replacement arrives.. The KP

Somethings new, somethings old, somethings borrowed.

I don't think the KP is replacing the K-3II.
That will be a higher speced camera
Its just all the goodies packed in that give that impression

I hope so... But until we see more evidence and this is a like for like replacement.
Aps-c flagship with fancy high speed buffers and safox12 AF should be coming but k3ii wasn't that either.. It was just the best we had until the k1.

Hopefully a K3 replacement will still have a top LCD and 2 cards.
Not impressed with the shrinking lcd on the K1. Too much real estate taken by bloody great knobs

Just wondering if anyone knows, I'm going to Japan next month. Is it worth looking for lens there, currently looking at the Sigma Art 35mm Prime. Or just buy it when they have sales here.

I'm not 100% sure, but Sigma is distributed by CR Kennedy (also Pentax distributor) and their eBay store (dcxprt) more often than not sells local stock at grey market prices. Providing the lens is available here, I doubt it would be much cheaper if at all.

Cheers for the reply. I know the second hand market is quite healthy in Japan so I'll just sniff around.
