Hi, some news from the Ricoh website :
- Come out in 2015.04.17
- Android version of the "Pentax Story" app

No release date for the 70-200 though.
Same release date. BUT can be some delayed. But not much.

I bought Sigma 150-500 just few weeks ago. After reading this new lens specification... can't say that I would regret it. WR/AW would be nice, but it doesn't justify the price abyss between them.


Anyway I'm eager to read about it's performance - maybe that will change my mind later on.
Hey there!
You are very right about that.I've been waiting for this new lens so long but when finally came out
I was totally hurt with this Price..
Please let me know how you like your new SIGMA!?

Thank you

Sorry guys....
Is the Sigma weather-sealed ?
Are the Canon 100-400 or the Nikon 80-400 cheaper than the Pentax ?
What about AF speed and HD TC compatiblity ?
What about bokeh, minimal focus distance, real f/stop range ?


Please, stop pretend being so easily hoodwinked.

No sir I don't think so !
To be honest,I would love to have 2500$ available and order the new HD but my bank account disagree with that.
I prefer to buy a brand new Pentax K3+Sigma 150-500mm for 1500$.
No money no honey, with all due respect
Am I wrong?

You may, you may not, it's to early to decide IMHO. But if you are about to buy the 150-500, you should wait & see if the 150-450 is far better.
For now we can say that the Pentax is (probably) better build and weather sealed, and the autofocus is (probably) a lot better.
For what I have seen so far, we can't discuss the image quality against the Sigma. Seems good.

In astronomy we have a saying. The best telescope is that you are using most.

In this case, the best lens is that one you can afford.

Thank you
right now the Nikon D7200 & Sigma Sport 150-600(very good reviews from what I've read) are the same price as the Pentax HD A 150-450
I mean the Pentax must be extremely sharp & good contrast at 450, to compete with Sigma at 450 ,as other specs on these 2 are very similar
I doubt any real world diff. between the D7200 & sigma vs the 'old'K3 & 150-450. So for Pentax to compete the K3 successor & FF must blow the Nikons out in to space..very exciting times

A friend picked one up and is very pleased. If the Pentax lens is as good or better than that, I'm definitely interested.

I suppose now that the new lenses are supported with the firmware update, they will start shipping?
