Gear to be announced together with K-1

- Pentax K-1
- Battery Grip D-BG6
- Pentax-D FA 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR
- HD Pentax-D FA 15-30mm f/2.8 ED SDM WR

Source: Digital Camera Info ?????????????? - ????info

Interestingly enough, the 28-105mm is not 'HD' nor 'smc'.

With its 'SDM', the 15-30mm f/2.8 is definitely a rebadged Tamron (but who doubted it?).

The Tamron 15-30 is known to be a very sharp lens. That should not surprise anyone here.

A complete Holy Trinity, two pieces of which are made by Tamron (with known good constructions), is a great way to start off the full-frame system.

Indeed, and let us better know the difference between these two words, we Pentaxians...

Going back to the 'just 28-105mm', I hope this is not the return of the Takumar Bayonet lenses .

Yea.. but can we be sure all of this simply won't be announced at CP+ and released later in the Spring?

I think that it will be ready to sell as soon as the K1 hit the stores, those are lenses that many people will look for.. along with the 70-200 and 24-70 ..

Yet that is my point.. the whole system may or may not be available in stores at CP+ time. We may get an announcement or we may get an announcement/release.

The 15-30mm f/2.8 being designed and manufactured by Tamron will most certainly be released when announced . The 28-105mm, on the other hand... Except if it's subcontracted too, of course.

In some ways, I would prefer a Pentax natively designed wide angle lens. That said, if Pentax is going to rebadge a lens, they could certainly do a whole lot worse than the Tamron. Since Hoya showed Jun Hirakawa the door, way back when, who then joined Tamron - it would be nice to find that he might have played a part in this lens. Perhaps he was able to sneak some pixy dust in to the design. It certainly does compare VERY favorably with the Nikon 14-24/f2.8 with the reputation of being one of the very best wide angle lenses designed. Sharpness is not everything. Reviews show a very nicely balanced lens across all of its characteristics. Plus, it is also WR.

The Tamron goes for $1200, with the Nikon going for $1900 - so hopefully, Pentax will price is more in line with the Tamron.
