So what lens(es) do you will be released/should be released when the K5/Kr ets updated ?

Considering Canon, Nikon and Sony all have a ?-400mm lens I am guessing something similar. That along with a WR TC and a K-5 with faster/more points AF would keep me happy.

If they bought out a MP-E 65 type lens and macro twin flashI would even sell my 50D.

(That's not going to happen though)

This with a decent 2x convertor would be something. Take some saving up for though.

Know someone with a Nikon 300mm f2.8 and they say the loss of image quality with a 2x is negligible.

With the release of the next camera, I think the rumoured DA12-35WR will be released.

Do I hope so? Not sure as I'm currently looking at buying the DA12-24 to finalize my kit and it might make the decision process more difficult

I'm with Mike- it has to be a x-400 mm lens and the TCs.
300f2.8 isn't going to happen, I can be sure of that. The 300f4 is brilliant

DA* 24 f/1.8.

I'd sell my car ...

100-400 f4-5.6 zoom wr of course.
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

I dont care, at present I cant afford it

But agree with others, something longer than 300mm is a definate requirement, and I've been hinting at an SDM T/C for ages, WR would be a bonus but I hate to consider the price

DA* 135-400

a DA*60-250 I could afford

A fast, light weight alternative to the bigma that I could afford....

DA* 30mm f/1.4 (DC motor, no SDM)

+1 (or possibly f/1.2)

I've got a Sigma 30/1.4 which I really like, but I'm sure a Pentax one would be smaller, metal and hopefully have a dose of the famous pixie-dust.
