If your standards are so low, I bet they will be met. The Canon L is meh at best and the Nikon, is, well...
The Sigma A 24-105 f4 seems to perform better than it's Nikon or Canon peers. It's not amazing, but it sets a benchmark for any new Pentax equivalent.

I'd be most happy to simply see a modernised SMC A 35-105 f3.5.

Pentax DFA 35-105mm f/3.5 HD WR DC sounds perfect.

With the same 67mm filter thread as the A 35-105 pls. The 82mm filter thread of a lens like the Sigma 24-105 is over the top. That lens is a behemoth.

Make sense. Make sense. It is a very reasonable choice for people who do not want to buy 24-70 2.8 and 70-200 2.8. If there is only one kit lens in Digital FF era now a days, this one definitely is a good choice without comprise too much of IQ...

oooooh. a 24-105 f/4 would be soooo nice

But them talking about it and actually researching, designing, manufacturing and retailing are different things!

That said, it isn't on the roadmap so it wouldn't surprise me if we don't see one..

I dont need a heavy 24-70/2.8 but a 24-something/4 would be interesting just because sometimes a zoom is more convenient than many primes.

It's right on par with the DA*16-50 with the poor aspect being it's a full stop slower (so should be much easier to yield better results) and costs +40%, but still doesn't perform any better (vignetting is really bad). So price/performance wise it's half as good as the DA*16-50. And the latter already has critics.

No wonder Nikon customers are running away in huge amounts (-50% in Japan last year).

I am positive any new Pentax kit lens will outperform that.
I'm hoping for a quality walkaround zoom in the Nikon 24-120mm range.....I have the Nikon on a D750 and whilst it is not a super sharp lens, it is pretty good, significantly better than my copy of the da* 16-50mm that was great in the centre but soft over about 20% of the frame on the right hand side and in the corners (I sent it away for repair and was told there was nothing wrong with it)!! The 24-120 also cost me less than £380 new (the da* 16-50 was nearly £500 secondhand), so I'm not sure where you get a 40% higher price and it ,therefore, being half as good?? For me, 24-120 covers at least 80% of my shooting needs so it would be ideal, as well as for many others I suspect, as long as the image quality is there! It doesn't need to compete with the best primes but it does need to be at least as good as my Nikon copy!!

To be honest, I'd be very happy with a small, weather-sealed 24 mm (or 20 mm) f2.8. I think that would fit with the Pentax ethos.

Well they're going to have to produce something, aren't they - unless they sell the FF only as body only - the traditional kit zoom was always 28-80 3.5- 5.6 or similar, and I'm guessing that would be the standard option - but I agree it would be nice to have something better than a kit lens but not so bulky or pricey as an f/2,8 as an option

D-FA 24-90/3.5-4.5 would be my choice.

When will people understand, that pro glass will be the first priority for the FF? Might come some cheaper stuff later..
