No new immediate Pentax K lenses at Photokina - davidmanze - 09-16-2014
Well what's the news from Pentax K mount at Photokina, well, not a lot, one new body the already known about, K-S1, one general zoom DA16-85mm F3.5-5.6 to be available at the end of the year and two zooms that are said to be in preparation.
Frankly I don't know what Pentax are playing at, everyone's waiting for new lenses and all they bring out is another not yet ready general zoom, (yawn).
I have no idea why they will "not" produce an entry level DSLR with an articulating screen and built in WiFi, a third of the market wants exactly that; so they lose that market straight away. With their APSc mirror-less projects abandoned and a refusal to incorporate modern features, they are becoming extremely stale with their APSc series, lets hope a few flashing LEDs save the day!
Their 645Z looks to be a great winner, but with FF snapping at it's heels, is it enough?
