The incentives and mechanisms or artificial limits and lifespans are well known. It's still intuitively completely unacceptable. Still it goes on, says a whole lot about a whole lot.

I believe that has something to do with the durability of the engine as well. A leaner fuel/air mixture wears the engine down faster than a 'fat' mixture, isn't it so?
And emissions... though Volkswagen figured out on their own how to remap around that...

tldr;

DFA 1.4 35 – This is a clear case of "Shut up and take my money!". Seems that it is on the roadmap. It would sit very well with my fat fifty and *85.

DFA 4.0 24-105 – I would love to have that one. Before the K-1, the 17-70 was my most used lens on the K-5 and the most missed after I got the K-1. This a one-size-fits-all type of thing.

I'm curious how many 35mm f1.4 Art's Sigma has sold in k-mount. For people who like that focal length that lens's eventual end of new-in-box availability will be an upset. It seems like a no-brainer for Ricoh to get their own "fat 35" out there for folks in the system.

EDIT: The suggestion of an f4 24-105 seems like something this system should have as well. They exist on basically every other full frame mount. Only way to make it better would be an f4 24-120 or something like that. A little extra on the end to make things a bit above the average.

Agreed, 24-120/4 would be an excellent news

I tried two Sigmas, both failed the af adjustment. Pentax will do better and technology has advanced ever since the Sigma was presented. DFA*35 would be the logical step after 50/85.

The AF on mine is a bit hit-and-miss (more hit than miss, but still), but optically it's very good. Not in the class of the DFA*50 though.

It's not going to happen, but a 24-90 would do for me. Covers almost everything. Perhaps one UWA in addition. Easier than 24-105 and perhaps higher IQ as a result. Perhaps a tad less bulky.
(I don't use tele much and my back is grateful for that after having been forced to carry the 645-A 4/300mm around).

I bought a used Sigma 24 macro 2.8 to go with my D FA 28-105. I find 24mm is not all that essential. It comes of the bag less than 1/4 of the time. If I can ever afford the DFA 21, I'll have 14mm, 21mm, 24mm and 28-105 covered on FF along with my FA-J 18-35 for grunt work. I suspect the desire for 24-105 is more than the need.

When I used the K-7 I had the Tamron 17-50/2.8 as my main workhorse. I did think that I needed 24mm on a zoom after I moved to FF... but eh. I'm far less decisive about it nowadays. I've found quite often that when I want wider than the 28 on my 28-105, 24 wouldn't have been enough anyway... so I jump straight to 20mm.


I'd probably prefer a 35-150 (or even 35-120) f/4 these days, if losing the wide angle meant keeping price and size down (as well as ensuring excellent performance throughout the zoom range). That would make a "budget" 24/2.8 more of a necessity though - the wide angle is sort of a lineup weakness right now.

I have a Tokina 20-35 that goes really well with the K1. It's the slow variant (f3.5-4.5), and I don't mind.
Something like that would be a great match with the 28-105 and a 70-300...
18-35 would be even better...
For most of what I do, it would be pick two of those and done...

16-35/4 would be a great addition to the full frame lineup, something similar to DA* 11-18/2.8

Agree. If it existed I would buy this one instead of 15-30/2.8. I hope for 70-300, and new line of wr limiteds with KP styled FF body.
