The Tokina 10-16mm is F2.8, so if anything, a 10-16mm lens would be f2.8, not f4.

Whatever that K-" "2 is I want it weather sealed, front and back wheels, manual control for HD video , focus point selection light and no enforce noise reduction.

We don't get any aperture bigger than f2 anymore except the DA* 55?

But the Tokina is 11-16 so maybe it is not based on the Tokina at all.

and where is my long time waited DA* 30mm?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?
If they're making a 20mm and a 28mm then it sounds like they might be full frame lenses since those are classic FF focal lengths. Maybe, just maybe they're going to make all the DA* primes FF-ready (all the current DA* primes are FF lenses) instead of focusing on an APS-C 30mm ? Man I hope. But, while not a 30mm f/1.4 a 28mm f/2 could be nice also, and even better you'd have a 28mm FF prime when it comes time to upgrade

Basicaly you want a K7 or a K7 enhanced.

This rumor doesn't look to fit.

Hmm, I hope you are right. The 20/2 do look rather bulky.

to be politically correct: I'd love for Pentax to release a k300D that kicks the T2is ass.

To be honest: I hope Pentax doesnt release any new, good(read: that i'd want) body until i've worked through my personal lens roadmap(still 1500$ to go).

But it'd just be my luck. That's the one thing i hate about innovation: It always comes round the corner AFTER i've made my decision.

Don't forget, these are just photoshopped images made by some Japanese magazine. This is highly speculative.

Has anyone else noticed the fine print below the "28mm" says 50mm? Plus, it obviously looks identical to the 50mm/1.4. This rumor is starting to smell.


EDIT: I think it might say SDM actually. Damn my vision sucks.

Well, yes, that makes a lot of sense.... lets pray for a reasonable low price on these lenses, or better, a cheap DA - DFA "normal" prime.

It's not a rumor. Just hopes 'n dreams. Please people, don't get so caught up.

Yes, but these lenses actually make sense, so, it's false :P
