Hey ... Pentax isn't dead after all ... 2 new lenses
Pentax-08 WIDE ZOOM (3.8-5.9mm f/3.7-4) for Pentax Q. (equiv. to "17.5-27mm")



Pentax HD DA 20-40mm f/2.8 ED Limited DC WR
Wails and nashing of teeth all over the Pentax related interweb. Too expensive, too slow, not enough zoom ratio Smile Hook this up to a K-5 variant or K-3 and you have a lovely petite travel wide angle or street shooters zoom. From what I can see with the small hood, Pentax seem to be confident from a flare perspective.


I would not be the least bit surprised if the FA Limiteds (31, 43, 77) get HD and or DC treatment in the next 6 months. Then the 50 f/2.8 Macro needs a new WR body ala the 100 Macro. 


Ricoh seem to like releasing something every month. Wonder what they have in store for January?

Of course it isn't dead... it Ricohises Smile

That fancy zoom is funny; nothing abitious but just a beauty.

If I have baught it I would called it Blonde Smile

But I will not change my 21 and 35mm Ltd set for it.



It seems that's "all" for this year, the roadmap was revised to state that futur lenses will be announced in 2014 or later :

Sized almost like the kit lens, but mounted doesn't look smallish...
