Any lens rumors?

Hi,
are there actually any lens rumors?

I do not want to start a wish list, but as it has been a while since there was a lens roadmap ...

Cheap DA 35\2 would make sense.

And ( echoing raving FF discussions ) god I pray they re-issue those FA* 28-70 and FA* 80-200 zooms.

It would both be a pleasure for Pentax zealots and a clear statement about coming 35mm sensor camera.

No. Hoya has been keeping the lid on things very tightly. Remember the DFA 100mm Macro was dismissed here as a Photoshop fake just days before it was announced and it hit stores within weeks.

Don't expect to see or hear anything until it is ready to ship.

Please Hoya some reasonably priced primes. There must be loads of designs to work from in the Pentax design back catalogue. At the moment used FA primes are selling for more then the new version of Nikons.

Quite impressed how tight Hoya/Pentax has been with leaks.

Beginning to doubt if it's worth staying with Pentax. Sony, Nikon and Canon all have release infos on their upcoming products while Hoya is being very tight mouth.

Really? Pentax will have press releases whenever they feel ready to announce a product. It's no different than Nikon or Canon. Pentax/Hoya's announcement is just later in the year relative to all the other manufacturers. Leica is typically tight with information as well - I don't see anyone complaining about them.

Yeah, really? That seems incredibly short-sighted. We know the Pentax announcements are coming soon. You're letting a few weeks cause you to consider jumping ship?

i won´t jump.

I am confident, whatever they present or update will be great.

I love the new design of the DFA 100 WR. Looks like a limited

Hope some information leaks soon

I was thinking about jumping ship too (The d800 rumors seem fairly valid and enticing), however, I reconsidered. I don't think I will until I see K5 and some image tests with it at ISO 3200+. That's my big concern is high ISO.

Watch some Pentax product videos on YouTube. That'll get your love for pentax rekindled.

there is only one thing that comes to my mind ....

"I won't back down... no I won't back down....."
especially after getting FA ltd trio + 50/1.2... switch brand because they they haven't released info on new products when others have already.... common now, really?

For the sake that I can ask ppl to buy Pentax without any reservations. Yes. These 3 would be perfect.

Personally, a 70-200/2.8 or 80-200/2.8 would be the lens to part me from my money.

70-210 2.8 or there about would make me part with my money too.
60-250 is nice and heavy, used it a lot indoors. just not fast enough.
