I found out that the DA14 had been discontinued around three months ago when I started looking at wide lenses to buy. No-one seemed that bothered to be honest, as few choose the DA 14 over the DA 15 ltd, but it still leaves a gap in the line-up if you need something a bit wider or faster. TBH, I think Pentax should release an updated and improved version, or a ltd even wider than the 15.

DA14 was very interesting lens and different from DA15 in all aspects.
I like f/2.8's photos from DA14.

Not for now. The title of the topic refers to the Photokina one.

I have both the DA14 and the DA15 Ltd. They are very different lenses and I liek both. Because of the size difference I usually carry the 15 with me. Hopefully we will see a replacement for the DA14. A new lns roadmap would be nice too. So I can actually start dreaming about buying future Pentax lenses.

Am I the only one who finds the 14mm to be a notch "soft"?

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...

Me, too ... quite happy with the K-5 and the photo budget is now oriented toward better glass acquisitions, both DA* format and FF format, too ... J

I have great hope in the two lenses of the roadmap, hypotetical DA*16-85/4 and DA100-400/5,6 WR DC HD.

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.

Hmn, well that wouldn't be a strong argument for Pentax to be honest (another relabeled lense). They have great engineers, why not utilize them?

I love your dream-roadmap, eurostar!

It's pretty close to reality, so far they've delivered what's on the road map. It says 2013 or later, though.

What do you know what I don't? There is a T/S rumored? A DA*16/4 Tilt Shift? That'd be phenomenal!!!

Ah, sorry, didn't notice his signature so I thought you were referring to "I have great hope in the two lenses of the roadmap, hypotetical DA*16-85/4 and DA100-400/5,6 WR DC HD."
