According to Ricoh's specs ........ the lens is made or uses magnesium alloy .....

Both Pentax-rebranded Tamron and Tamron use fuorine coatings for the front element, and both state as such on their product pages.
The Tamron for Canon weighs 860 grams. The Tamron for Nikon weighs 850 grams. The Tamron"Pentax" weighs 859 grams.
