Even though there's no stretch of the imagination that would let me say I NEED one, I wish I could find an FA 600/4 that I could *AFFORD*.

...along with the necessary tripod, tripod head, lens case/carrier and sherpa to lug it about.

What range do you need to cover?

My 300/2.8 works well with the K-1.

The limited 77/1.8 and the A 100/2.8 Macro do pretty good for portraiture.

The K1 to me is an ideal portrait/landscape camera, not so great for
events, the fact that they managed to deliver the trio of pro-spec
zooms at launch was admirable but they seem a miss match for the body.

A couple of high quality portable primes (the 15-30 is a great lens, I
have the Tamron version but it's huge and weighty) to satisfy
traditional landscape and portrait shooters should have at least
closely followed the launch of the three f2.8 zoom lenses IMO.

I needed a new solution to cover my events shooting with better speed
and low light performance (was previously using K3/K3/K5iis
combination) but I knew that the K1 buffer would limit its usefulness
to me so I finally jumped ship. I would have stuck around for another
5 plus years on top of my 30 or so if they had produced a K3/ii
replacement in a timely fashion.

I don’t expect Pentax to be able to compete with Fuji in resources. But Im happy with my gear. It would probably serve me well for the rest of my days, although I will upgrade if I see something I like.

Compare to the GFX. In 2017 Fuji released 6 lenses for the system. And
that's not even counting all the other lenses they have released in
the past year from X mount to cinema lenses. Pentax designed 2 whole
lenses for the K-1. The 100-450 and 70-200. And it took them over 2
years just to come up with a 50mm? huh? Yeah, not really feeling all
that optimistic about their future right now......
