Well, both that lens and the 18-70 could be lenses for fixed lens cameras
I'm not so sure about the 25-350, but the 18-70 definitely has fixed lens all over it. Perhaps Ricoh plans to fully modularize the GXR lines and this will be one of the lenses.

If they make the 16-70 WR I'm all for it, it's missing!
I agree. I would still like to see a 16-~70ish f4 DA* zoom, as was originally projected on earlier lens roadmaps. But a slightly wider WR replacement of the 17-70 would be fine as well.

I think the 18-70 is a new kitlens, we've seen the 25-350 before: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-news-rumors/129284-pentax-files-pa...ocus-lens.html

One of them could be a pancake zoom like the sony 16-50 ?

Or indeed for a cheaper Leica X Vario alternative.

And i think Tamron still sells a 18-270 lens for apsc. I like the new Ricoh/Pentax - new flash, new coating, new lenses, new patents, new camera - activity!

DA Limited Zoom?

Google Translate another source for four lenses. the 15-45 has a 1/1.7" image circle, so probably for the q (too bad because now it is a 2.8 fixed aperture lens).

Too bad, 15-45 f/2.8 would have been really interesting as the limited zoom, assuming it would have been really small. It fits the range shown on the roadmap and everything.

On a completely unrelated subject, I finally saw a Q in the flesh; some Japanese tourists had one in my friends coffee shop. Seriously tiny, and felt really well built, it makes sense to me now. Anyone who's hatin' on it needs to actually hold one first.

.
The ltd. zoom in the roadmap appears to be a 20-35mm zoom.

Er, then it must be the 06 lens, since that's the 15-45 F2.8.

I'd be very interested in a 16-70 f/4 that's WR with a DC focus motor.

The old DA 17-70 f/4 is in dire need of an upgrade.
