Looks like this thread has taken a tangent ... more news about everything but the 560mm lens !

And, it looks like a long wait until P-R decides to announce anything new.

This thread appears to be in terminal decline.

Due to the lack of any recent meaningful input, it is now travelling faster and faster in ever decreasing circles, and will eventually disappear into it's own fundamental orifice, perhaps with a barely audible whimper and a wispy puff of smoke.

LOL !!

You have a good point: this is coming to an end ... until at least we get some real news from Ricoh-Pentax.
Obviously, I was sucked into meaningless postings ... my bad !

So, that'll be TTFN until the said news become reality.

Cheers !

There is going on thread about Russian photo Expo, caused by Russian Pentax forum. The guy who worked for the Pentax on the Expo posted that there were no info about 560/5.6.

Thanks Greyser, found the thread.

I guess that I need more patience then. Hopefully it is released before or during th summer but fast releases of new items is not Pentax` strong side...

So... thanks to the super moon last night, I took a photo (as many did) and posted it on the Pentax Snaps Australia Facebook page (as many also did).

I posted the comment saying: "Taken tonight with a K20D and the DA 55-300mm. When is that 560mm going to see the light of day? It'd be perfect for this sort of thing "

Pentax Snaps responded: "The DA* 560mm would have been perfect alright. We should see it roll out later this year."

So... take it as you will, either a slip of the fingers/tongue or an honest typo. But, if it was a slip, then it's got a DA* designation!

Whoops! That would be nice. A (relative) bargain in DA* 560mm might keep me in Pentax and attract others. We'll see.

Well picked up Vylen.

This is certainly grist for the rumour mill.

I thought I was listed on the lens road map as a 2012 release already?
Atleast that what this one says..
