It will be 18-70.
And also the 150-450, FF image circle. Also refreshed FA limiteds. And something new in the DA* forefront.
Wait till CP+, and then revisit this thread.
hm... there is already 17-70

Which is optically good but has serious af issues and does not have wr. If the new lens is 18-70 etc and have dc & wr it will be a good move from Pentax. I will buy it.

someone says f/2.8 and covering a larger image circle than just APSc or f/2.8~4 and APSc only, but it is in production.

I don't see a 17-70 being FF but then Ricoh may have some Sigma steroids somewhere ?
That'd be HUGE lens, even at f/4.

Yep, that's why it's more common to see a 24-70 if the lens is FF. And even those are pretty big, though usually f/2.8

No one at Pentax has said it will start at 17mm.

All we can reasonably interpret from the roadmap is that it will be a normal zoom with a 3-4x zoom ratio.

Perhaps it's only the old 4/17-70 updated to WR + HD specs...

And Ricoh will sell it at $1999.99... And people here will buy/justify it.

I hope not... :-(

Although the idea of a 3x zoom at mid FL isn't bad at all, I just hope it delivers well like this 20-40 where users are claiming..

Yes, but OTOH, they could sell it for $19.99 and some people would say it wasn't fast enough, sharp enough, cheap enough, and that it was too big, too small, the focus ring was over damped or under damped, the bokeh was busy, and it it didn't fix breakfast for them in the morning and dispense their favorite beer in the evening.
Worse yet, horror of horrors, it might say Ricoh on it somewhere.

If it doesn't make me a nice cup of coffee for $19.99 it's not worth it.

not really seeing the purpose for this limited zoom--its neither compact, fast, nor particularly useful zoom range. About the only thing going for it is the reputation for quality build and WR, might have to pass on this one...
