It's probably supposed to have good image quality, not the one typical of the old lenses that were downright hazy at f/1.4. So you pay for that... in kilograms. :)

I sometimes use bank-notes or even a creditcard to pay a lens. Rarely coins.  ^_^

Haha... that remark reminds me of a case when a businessman who was ordered by a court to pay compensation to someone chose to do so using sacks and sacks of copeck coins out of spite.  :wacko:

 

Speaking of lenses... as we've already discussed in the General forum, large lenses are inevitable - such is the price for our race's salvation, Judicator the ability to enjoy decent IQ on ever larger sensors. :)

The D FA lens roadmap was also updated.

First, besides this D FA*50mm f/1.4 we also have a D FA* 85mm f/1.4 - for those two lenses we know the focal length and aperture.

Then, we have:

- Large Aperture Wide-Angle Single Focus Lens (new: it's now Large Aperture)

- Ultra Wide-Angle Single Focus Lens (new: it's no longer Large Aperture)

- Fish-Eye Zoom Lens

- Telephoto Zoom Lens (new on the roadmap)

The DA Wide Zoom remains on the DA lens roadmap.

Let the guessing game be joined. :)

 

Looks like the "Large Aperture Wide-Angle Single Focus Lens" is a 35mm (f/1.4 or f/2 or... an f/1.8 that might look conspicuously like an offering from a well known manufacturer whose name starts with a "T").

 

The "Ultra Wide-Angle Single Focus Lens" might be a 18mm or 20mm f/2.8, not much to write home about really.

 

The 17-28mm zoom fisheye is getting a successor, nice.

 

And since the Pentax lineup is pretty well populated with telephotos (at least, in theory...) the missing one looks like a slow 70-300 in the vein of Canon / Nikon / Tamron.

 

All in all, some pretty solid plans. Let's see if they come to fruition, and when.
