The 70-200 on the K-3. Its a MONSTER! Ways a lot, superfast AF and sharp as hell!
Looks like a monster indeed.
I think "sharp as hell" sounds good (although I still have to go to that place... ) but "superfast AF", does it mean: super fast by any standards or by Pentax standards?

Thanks for all those teasers, kenspo!

Just looking at how this beast fits onto the front of the K-3 tells me we're in a whole nother league here.

There is no doubt about that. Pentax is aiming for the pro-marked!

Yes and yes I can confirm I fekt the same, with both 150-450 and 70-200. Those two lenses just aren't in the same universe as previous Pentax lenses. Simple as that.

There's going to be a 15-30 mm? Is it the same optical formula as the Tamron?

I presume they are all f2.8?

Either way, they are going to have a very nice 'pro' zoom lineup: 15-30, 24-70, 70-200.
What do they have planned for new fast primes?

Can you post a few more pictures of it mounted to the K-3 so we can see just how big it is? Super fast AF? Are you sure you're talking about a Pentax lens?

Me! I have that one too
Great new ! Just in case, if you have an irrepressible desire to go to the zoo this weekend, let's say, with the 2 new toys, please feel free !
Seriously speeking, in which context did you get the lenses ? Is Ricoh paying you to test them ? Will you be allowed / will you agree to upload some RAWs ?

Thanks !
