I wonder if there are any chances to get that new eyepiece of KP Custom as separate accessory. I would like one for my K-1II.

Looks good. Once these lenses are out, the line-up will be pretty good. Only a standard FF Star zoom is missing.
The two wide angle FF primes are of very ill-defined focal length, so it's not possible yet to say we'll be sitting pretty when they come out. The "Large Aperture Wide-Angle" could even be a refreshed FA* 31!

I would also like to see a FF TC or two to round things out.

I wonder how much appeal a revised 16-45 f4 would hold?
That would actually be nice! With HD coating and a less wobbly barrel, thank you.

I wonder how much appeal a revised 16-45 f4 would hold? For those who need f2.8 there's the 16-50; for those who don't there's the 16-85. Yes, a little less bulky, a little faster at the long end and presumably cheaper than the 16-85, but much more limiting focal range for a walkaround lens.
Reduced focal range mean higher quality, so a 16-45 f/4 lens WR would be very welcome for landscape photographers if IQ is better than 16-85 and 16-50.

They will be a DFA*35/1.4AW and a DFA20/2.8WR. I'd stake someone else's life on it.

Be prepared to wait though....

This is Pentax we're talking about. Play safe? Run back to Momma.

I think it will be a DFA*35mm 1.4 and a 18 or 21mm Limited lens with an aperture between 3.2-4. It’s marked differently to the other wide aperture lD-FA* lenses on the roadmap.

I don’t think so, that would make it too similar to the just-refreshed FA35/2.

But I wouldn’t bet anyone’s life on it.

They'll do a DFA29 f1.8 (complement of the 31 ltd). Pentax were good at making odd numbered focal lengths: 31,43 and 77mm ltd...
There are never enough primes lenses. When I use the 35, I realize I would need 28, and when I use 28, I realize I'd need 50 or 85. What that did to me, I started with the DA40ltd, and I ended up buying the 15, 21, 35 macro and 70ltd, after realizing I have done the unconcievable, I swore I would never get a prime lens again for full frame.

You can use the 11-18 and do a digital crop of the 18mm it to go to 600mm equivalent. But I agree it won't be as wide a 8mm, unfortunately. (you could use the sensor shift at 11mm to make it as wide a 8mm).

A new kit lens? Maybe a total redesign to give decent resolution with 24mp and higher? (since the last one was designed for a 10mp or maybe 14mp camera. An upgrade for the first one that only had to resolve 6mp. The 2015 18-50 is the same lens design in a different package).


I didn't really see a use for a Fish eye zoom, so I do not rue it's disappearance from the road map.

Large aperture means it will be for sure f/1.4
