The people who know details can't talk. The people who talk don't know details.

They need at least

HD DFA24/1.8WR DC
HD DFA35/1.8WR DC
HD DFA50/1.4WR DC
HD DFA85/1.8WR DC

to stay competitive. If they create something faster like 35/1.4, 85/1.4.. why not, even better.

..copy every other manufacturer out there. You know, pentax need to be original and copy everyone else, that is the key: otherwise Pentax/Ricoh are going to lose market share. Lets make Pentax Great again!

Did I take that too far? I could have said, lets make pentax yuuuuuge! that would have been simpler.
