If not, why the support of this top of the line DA* lens is needed to be stopped so soon and so early? :-(
Back to what I am thinking actually, I believe Pentax do have a serious plan, that is, to migrate to Full Frame. I guess the lens will still be in production, but the lens hood just won't work anymore and they are now making a new one (with a wider angle-of-view coverage)! :-)

Old Question: Will there be a Pentax Full Frame DSLR?
