What type of drive mechanism (DC, Pulse, SDM) isn' t mentioned.
Nor is the important question, should I buy this or the DA* 55 1.4 which is already available?

Odd to say the least, with a 55 already out there, an 85 or 135 are conspicuous in their absence. Especially the 135 with not a single new lens available between 100 and 200mm and the 100 and 200s being older designs.

They never discuss these things with me.

I would have said they need a 150mm macro.

Given the length and girth and depth of the hood, I would have guessed a fast 85.

So that's the "Large Aperture Standard Single Focus Lens" from the Feb 2016 DFA roadmap, listed after the "Wide Angle Single focus lens"

That's a big boy! If it is going to be that big why not just go the whole hog and make a 1.2 to compete with Canon.

Then we could all joint the "1.2 only" club. They'd hate that. They think they are special.

I think they are paying Pentax not to make a 1.2.

Hmm, the filename of the image is "dfa_50mm_f14_mockup_image.png"
Hope it's not another 18 months before this hits the street. (looking at the DFA 70-200)
