New Pentax lens announcements!
#6
  The 150-450mm is a good lens......but for me and many birders 450mm  just isn't long enough even on APSc!

 

 The DA 560mm was IMHO a strange offering, very long, telescope optics, only F5.6 and needs stopping down to be sharp, Pentaxians had been waiting for an affordable long tele-zoom and they got offered that lens with a 7,000 euros price tag.......that lens should have been affordable..........proof,  barely a soul bought it!

 

   Pentax are in a super position with their association with Tamron, IMHO they should bring out the 150-600mm G2 in the K mount.....as well as many others. 

 

........Yes you may say.......it would spoil the sales of their own 150-450mm.....but, so what?..... it would prevent much brand migration.

      A lot of Pentax birders have gone to dual systems now,  with Nikon for birding for the availability of long glass, in the end I had to succumb to the endless new improved affordable glass coming out, 98% of which is unavailable in the K mount.
