Ricoh patent for 24/2 APS-C lens

Pentax is not mentioned and it could be for the GR family but....


7 lens in 4 groups. Might be a plastic fantastic ala the 50/1.8 & 35/2.4 or perhaps something more mainstream.

24mm f/2 would be a perfect addition to the lineup of low-cost primes for Pentax.

This is my dream lineup of "starter" primes:


C'mon Ricoh! You know they would sell, and firm up Pentax as the brand of choice for prime-lens shooters.
