4 new lenses and 1 teleconverter planned
By PF Staff in Pentax Announcements on Aug 28, 2013
In response to yesterday's lens announcement, an updated version of the Pentax K-mount DSLR Lens Roadmap / Lineup has appeared on the Japanese Pentax web site (now branded as a Ricoh Imaging site).
The new roadmap, which is available for download here, indicates that four new DA lenses as well as a SDM-compatible teleconverter will be launched in the near future. These lenses include:
- A wide-angle Limited zoom (~20-40mm)
- A wide-angle zoom (~10-30mm)
- A general-purpose zoom (~16-85mm)
- A telephoto zoom (~100-400mm)
The general-purpose zoom, which was previously slated to be a premium DA*-series lens, is now shown as a standard consumer DA lens.
Additionally, the five new HD DA Limited lenses have replaced the previous SMC versions on the updated roadmap.
