We appear to be getting a DA* 70-200... FF?(Hard for it not to be FF I know)
Cheers Jules...

Not necessarily a DA* , maybe intentional or maybe a typo.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

At last we are beginning to see Ricoh are serious about the DSLR market. First the K-3, now the teleconverter and promise of a 70-200mm f2.8 and long range tele zoom.

Too late for me as I am happy enough with the Sigma OS version but all this activity certainly bodes well for the K mount.

Hmm, can't see F2.8 anywhere there Mike.
May be this one though...

Wishful thinking, I'm wishing for an F4 thats light but an F2.8 would be nice too and then everyone will buy one and hopefully the second hand prices will drop on the 60-250 so I an afford one again.

The link to the roadmap doesn't seem to work now - or is it just me?

What I would like is a 17-70 constant f2.8 W/R lens. This would cover for 80% of my photography so I would be prepared to pay good money for a quality item. I have a Sigma 17-70 and the Pentax 17-70 which are optically fine but an upgrade in build quality and constant f2.8 would be a winner for me.

Cant see any mention of a 70-200 on that map!

Cheers Pal, no actual lens, just a hint of things to come

I'm not a FF fantasist, but it's interesting that the telezoom states * but not "DA".

The map is still missing what Pentax really needs: DA* fast primes of 16mm, 24mm, 35mm.
