fair enough.

That's why theres tons of lenses out there, more selection for everyone and a lens for everyone. Just myself personally don't see the need to saturate the "normal zoom" range with more variable aperture lenses when Pentax could put the effort into something like Sigma's 1.8 zoom, 120-300 f2.8, or 24-105 f4 (that would be cool). Or come up with some fast wide angle or tele primes... 35mm f1.4? 20mm f2.8?, updated 85mm f1.8?, 135mm f2.0?

not including anything over 70mm.... for zooms we got:

DA*16-50 f2.8

DA 20-40 f2.8-4

DA 17-70 f4

DA 18-55 f3.5-5.6

While essentially you could shoot anything 10mm-250mm with just three/four lenses (DA 10-70, DA*16-50, DA*60-250 + DA*50-135 to cover the 50-60mm gap?) it would be nice to have some high quality fast primes for low light. The DA Limiteds and FA Limiteds are beautiful lenses, but there are gaps when it comes to primes. a proper 200mm FOV fast prime would be fantastic! Or even a 135mm FOV fast prime (closest we have the 77mm f1.8)

Just saying, we got "normal zoom" covered. time to give us something we don't. :P
