70-200 seem to be much heavier than Nikon and Canon...

Ah, people already complaining about SDM (though it is not even there), weight and price.

Not that I'm surprised.

hehe probably because red is like free advertisement for Canon...

"Hey nice Canon!"
"No it's a Pentax."
"A what? Dude why did you get a Chinese fake Canon knock off lens?"
Nonsense. They don't look even remotely similar.
People are complaining just for the sake or complaining.

We do not have official names yet. According to what we know (or think we know) they aren't SDM nor DC nor IF nor AL nor SR nor WR.

Clearly something should be added in those names....

Me too, red looks better. Just my opinion.
But ironic since Pentax is known for greens and over saturating reds...

Just like they're complaining about people who aren't really complaining just for the sake of complaining.

Geez lighten up... Who's complaining here?

Now that you mentioned it, I'm obliged to find something to complain about...

So even thou I know next to nothing about this new full-frame zoom lens and it will probably be close to a year before anyone can buy it and mount it, I think I am qualified to say that this is the worst-lens-ever!

It's way too big, it may or may not have SDM (either way it's BADD), I can definitely tell from the pixels that this lens will not be as sharp as my </insert old lens here>

OMG total fail, Pentax should go back to drawing board and sell a large-format camera with 12MP (anyone who needs more than that doesn't know how to properly take a photo - I know because I've been taking photos ever since Edison invented the lightbulb).

Pentax is DOOOOOOOOMEd!

People complained about the red rings, basically using the "it's Canon's color, not Pentax'" idea; but you knew that.

erm nobody *complained* - i merely pointed out that maybe Pentax dropped the red line because a MUCH bigger competitor already have a VERY well established and well known line of premium lens with the symbolic red line.

Somebody likes the red line, somebody doesn't like the red line, so what? That's just a personal opinion. I'm indifferent to it. I'm simply making a joke on the FACT that red line is prominently displayed in Canon L lens since like, forever, to the extent that even my non-English speaking non-photographer father equates a red line with a good camera (yes yes, its the lens but he doesn't know nor care). So maybe Pentax will drop it in order for it's perfectly good green line differentiator... If that's "complain" to you then somebody forgot to eat their Snickers bar this morning...

Somehow I failed to perceive these are FA lenses and are (of course) FF lenses. A FF body coming at next Photokina?

Next Photokina is September 2016. That seems a bit too far away in the future...

The 35mm-format Pentax digital SLR is expected before the end of the year. That's from Ricoh Imaging.
