Yes I'm going to keep it up to date...
Hi Artur,
I just downloaded your excellent chart.
The pentax 24-90 zoom is not on there - it is still available in the USA but is getting harder to find.
I presume your chart is for current lenses only??

Are the Schneiders even necessary? They're simply rebadged Pentax lenses.

You have obviously spent a lot of time on this, but can I offer another suggestion or 2?

first, it would be really great if, for each lens, you also had all the critical specifications,
- physical size, (l x d)
- weight,
- otpical groupings (i.e. elements/groups)
- minimum focus,
- maximum magnification ratio, and
- filter diameter.

Next and possibly harder, photos and spec's for lenses that are out of production,

Both of these are things missing from our present lens database, i.e. specs for pentax lenses, and all data and listing of old and current 3rd party lenses.

Adding all those information might be hard to keep the current streamline form, though I think filter diameter, physical size, and weight are needed.

Anyway, I like the idea of this road map, very helpful for new Pentax users for a quick overview.

To the OP, if you need help, please let me know. I would gladly take over the prime section.
