Out of this lot ... I think I'd get the 60-250.

Yep, and of course it is the one that they did not release.

Richard, any idea of when the 60-250 will now be released?

rgds Phil
I don't know an exact date, I don't think anyone does (even Mr Hisashi Tatamiya)! .

I've been told that it is definitely the next lens to be introduced, apparently there are some final details being attended to as Pentax know that this is their most anticipated zoom lens. They are aware of this poll, so post to it if you haven't already.

I've been reliably informed that there will be an announcement concerning the lens and also a new lens roadmap published during PMA, so we shall get an official update then.

On the internal grapevine it is guessed at sometime around April, but as I said, that's a guess.

I am one of those waiting as well!

Sorry I cannot be any more specific.
