I really wonder what the new "DA Wide Zoom" on the road map will be? A 12-24 remake perhaps, but what if it is a 12-28 - or a 14-28 with FF coverage...?

I bet it's the 11-16/2,8 from Tokina, that is requested for Pentax since it's came for Nikon and Canon. I was expecting it to appear only when the DA14/2,8 would be out of production, and now it is.
It could be Pentax's version of the new Tokina AT-X 12-28mm f/4 PRO DX exhibited at CP+

CP+2013??Tokina ??????????????2??????? | ???? | ????

Thank you, I missed that one. It seems the 12-28 is a replacement for the 12-24, so then it's IMHO very likely that this is the lens. Of the lenses jointly made by Tokina and Pentax, this one is the only Tokina design, isn't it?

sounds reasonable, though as said before, I don't like the idea...

How does it compare in terms of IQ? A lot of people love the Pentax 12-24mm

Both the 12-24mm and the new 12-28mm are Tokina designs (their optical formula, I mean).

I would prefer the 11-16 2.8 with SDM in DA* version.
Then with the 16-50 and 50-135 Pentax would have the best DX zoom trinity.

No Pentax dealer in Atlanta. Fry's is listed as authorized retailer but they don't even stock the P&S models.
I was in the Wolf Camera in Buckhead the other day and they had a K-30, just fyi... I didn't really look to see what else was there.

I'm afraid that the DA zoom - which is not a DA*zoom will be the successor of the DA55-300, so nothing comparable; if it is a DA100-400/5,6 I'll get one !!

Any news or speculation about lenses? Everybody's keen on a new body - I am more than satisfied with my K5 - but I'd love to have new lenses.... a DA*24/1.4, a DA*35/1.4, a DA*12-24 etc...
I'm still waiting for the DA* 18mm f/1.8...

Yeah, that'll be awesome, too. Great alternative would be the wide-angle zoom WR, a 16-85WR and the 50-135...Anyhow, I am waiting for the next announcements before taking any decisions... be it either Pentax or Canon.

Speaking of your dream lenses - it's not 2.8 , but with all the praise for the FA*200mm macro, I can't really understand why Pentax doesn't start producing it again, possibly in a cosmetically altered "DA*" version.

The old map is here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/attachments/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/11...ns_roadmap.pdf


The new road map (link to a FB post):
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=474032609298040&set=a.13530014983795...type=1&theater

Basically the DA18-270 and the DA560mm is in there. They also update the picture of FA ltd to silver color one.
The K-mount lens map is linked in English as a PDF on the Pentax Japan site. There's also maps for the 645D and Q lenses. The k-mount map isn't as recent as the one linked from Facebook which is curious.

praise and profit are two different things.

Voigtlander 125mm is also a super macro but is also not made anymore
