By PF Staff in Pentax Announcements on Feb 2, 2012
Silently alongside the Pentax K-01 announcement, Pentax USA has revealed the Pentax 2012-2013 lens roadmap, meaning we know what to expect this year as far as new DSLR lenses go!
The roadmap, which you can download here, lists 7 new lenses planned for the next two years or so.
- DA 50mm replacement for the FA 50mm
- DA ~20-200mm walkaround zoom
- DA 550mm non-star telephoto prime
- DA limited short zoom (~20-40mm)
- DA wide zoom (~10-25mm)
- DA* zoom (~20-80mm F2.8)
- DA telephoto zoom (~100-300mm)
- DA 1.4x SDM teleconverter
The most exciting addition for many will be the 1.4x teleconverter; likewise, it seems that a telephoto gap will be filled by these lenses, and that there will be more high-end and budget lens options as well.
