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.
