Done. But one thing is sorely missing : 60-250 F4 for full frame.

I'm not sure this survey is actually going to make any difference - Ricoh themselves had an official one about lens requests very recently, so I doubt they will care much about this one.

Also - 16-50 f/2.8 for APS-C only is not on the list!

In some cases, I saw "Undecided" as meaning "depends on which lens" or, in other words, "could be either, depending." Just an FYI.

IMHO, i think there should be a lot more wishes for FF lenses since the APS-C lens lineup is already pretty complete.

Depends - I have no interest in FF, I just shoot APS-C. And I think there's still quite a bit missing - I personally am interested in:

1) A modern, weather-sealed UWA zoom with silent focus. I.e. the 12-28 on the roadmap. The DA 12-24 is not weather-sealed, screw-driven and 11 (!) years old.

2) A 24 mm prime akin to the DA 35 and DA 50. Ideally also weather-sealed and with DC.

3) An updated 16-50 f/2.8, with better optical performance and faster AF. Something like an HD DA 16-55 f/2.8 DC WR, similar features and price to the HD DA 16-85 DC WR.

And that's just me. I can imagine other APS-C shooters to have other priorities.

When I follow your link, it only shows me the results, it doesn't allow me to take the survey.

you should have included # aperture blades in the features questions, as the # and shape of the blades(straight/curved) is important to rendering and light stars.

I've moved to FF so APS-C is not a big deal to me but I wanted to note that you nailed the holes in the APS-C line.

The DA*60-250 f/4 might also need a refresh with a new motor. But I would rather they just make the 60-250 as FF which based on the mods done should not be a huge problem.

Thanks for taking the time to put this together -- hopefully it will reinforce the survey Ricoh did this summer and help them expedite decisions as to future lens offerings -- there are some serious gaps in the full frame lineup ....

Agree! I would have vote for it. A modern, silent, fast focusing and reliable standard zoom with a 2.8 aperture isn't a luxury in 2016.
