You mean so they wouldn't get negative comments about the SDM - that went well, didn't it
They don't care about such negative comments, actually they're aware they can't stop them. If it's not SDM, those people would find something else.
What I mean is they weren't ready to tell us about the (new) SDM motor. Maybe because the motor weren't ready, maybe because they were saving it for another occasion.

Yeah SDM stands for Swift Death Motor, what is Ricoh thinking! Calling something SDM will make it break down!

But enough talk, it's time to go out and take some photos.
That's just crazy talk! Seriously, who does that?

Yeah. Let's do our best to make people believe this new ring-type ultrasonic motor is the exact same component as the initial micromotors used in the 16-50. A decade ago.

Indeed. It's quite liberating.
True, but there are days I want to be reminded of exactly WHY I BoriscletoTM'd somebody, and seeing the most egregious snippets of their drivel quoted used to make me comfortable in the knowledge that my decisions had been correct.

The DA * 11-18 is the last APSC lens you will see from Pentax - Ricoh this replaces the 12-24, and keeps faith with the buyers of APSC bodies k10 to k3 mk2, this lens was designed with help from Tamron and is made in a reconditioned ex Ricoh printer plant in the Philippines, as for all other focal length requirements Ricohs answer will be purchase full frame and put up with the 1.5 shift, the SDM 12-24 16-50 50-135 60-250 were contract made by Hoya - Tokina they will disappear in the next year as stocks roll down, this ends Ricoh's association with Hoya, Ricoh will now make all future Pentax lens in conjunction with Tamron (they own a controlling share holding), the Pentax k2 will appear over the next 12 months and will be a k3 with a full frame chip, the 645G a full frame 45X60 camera will appear before the end of year, its not clear yet if the camera will feature sensor shake reduction or not, do not hold your breath waiting for a radical APSC body its not coming, the future is full frame in the mind of Ricoh.

This is the last quote you will get from me. After this, all of your posts will be hidden from my view. This actually is an accurate statement. Contrary to yours.

I do hope this is deliberate BS. If so, it would be nice if you put a /sarc tag or a smilie of some sort, like this , at the end.

Otherwise you will be joining my ignore list pretty swiftly.

The only part of your tirade that's not totally speculative:

QuoteQuote:
Ricoh will now make all future Pentax lens in conjunction with Tamron (they own a controlling share holding)
is also totally wrong:



Stock Information | IR | Tamron Co., Ltd.

What do you want us to think of the rest?

There's a report button, let's use it. Even if it is intended as sarcasm (how would we know?) it's over the top.
By the way, can anyone pinpoint the Ricoh Imaging's Pentax lens factory on Google Maps?

If you'd prefixed your post with "In my opinion", I think you might have had more positive (or, at least, fewer negative) responses

Snappertim has previously claimed the DFA 70-200 and 150-450 are actually Sigmas.
