    What are my options for a new tele zoom in the 500-600mm max range?

    What gear are you selling, namely lens, namely primes :)

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

    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.

    Hunted down the limited edition of the K-1 last night on CR Kennedy's eBay store and grabbed it for $2239.20 delivered with the 20% off voucher.

    I think it was a good buy and it'll match my silver 31 and 77 lenses. :D

    Yes, a Pentax 645Z. Even today there is no camera who IQ is materially better.
