Look, I don't want to get into a debate about things which are highly subjective. It would be pointless for all involved.
I merely offered some reasons why people might still prefer made for APS-C lenses instead of new D FAs. But, I repeat, most D FAs will work well on APS-C.

He could tell us, but then he'd have to . . . .

It's not a rumour
Actually a good reaction "against all odds" ( ) spread around by the late "spring début"

By 'weird FL' I mean focal ranges which are not very practical on APS-C - for example, a 24-70 or a 28-105; they're not quite wide enough for a standard zoom. That's all.
But many D FA lenses will work very well, image quality and practicality wise, on APS-C.
Okay, now I see what you mean. I find 28 wide enough for most of my purposes on APS-C, but I accept that others may not.

There is a DA wide on the lens roadmap... but since the DA lens range is quite complete and the D FA isn't, it's obvious that working on the latter has a higher priority....SNIP
There's a recurring rumor the DA 12-24 is discontinued. If it's true then the DA range is incomplete and a new DFA ultrawide would be an interesting way to fill the gap for APS-C and FF.

Anyway it is great fun to have atleast some excitement flowing once again, waiting for new stuff to surface.

Shhh, hey kenspo,
you can tell me, quietly.
Just whisper.

Nobody else is listening
over here. Everyone else
is over on that other side.

I won't tell.

Anyone else wondering if there are going to be new lenses announced besides the zooms from the roadmap? I saw in another forum that somebody said Ricoh's North American webstore no longer offers the 43mm, even as a backorder. I could have sworn they had that lens on there within the last couple months, and they usually keep backordered lenses on their store.

asahiman hinted that new primes are coming in 2016. Since I have all the magic limiteds, I have no fear if they will need more time to make other/new ones. Although I'd be really interested in new and fast 85, 100, 135 mm lenses.

Syllable count off.
