Delays

If the FF body was out and someone has bought it expecting to be able to have the new lens to go with it .... And they were losing professional work because they couldn't do jobs that needed the lens ... Well, then I would be sympathetic to that complaint. As it stands, no-one really absolutely needs the lens yet ... It will be a greater priority when the FF body is ready.

It would much worse if people had spent full price only to have a failure and repair to be done. No-one has lost any money or time yet.

what i think is every one is missing the big point a company cannot survive on promersis
ricoh are not hitting the targets they keep anouncing which as a big impact on the company

and defending there desitions is not helping

we as customers and users should be saying to them to get there act together and stop leading us on

Yes because business likes adding in delays and spending more money and time on research and development in their products don't they?

I imagine the old Pentax wouldn't have even sent out a press release just the odd murmur it's arriving soon...

No members have a Leica or a hasselblad then?? I imagine a few of those members have moved from ca ikon to Fuji, I know a few pros who have, I also know a number of pros that are moving to Olympus because of the lightness of the system...

Are these gripes coming from anyone who has actually ordered one? Or who realistically is desperate to buy one now?

As my dear old mum might have said: "If that's all you've got to worry about then you haven't done too badly..."

It's a lens.
Best wishes,

Andrew

And why not let that be the final words to a rather pointless thread..!
