Lens road maps

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if lenses on the lens road maps are definitely going to be released or if its what we expect/think will be released next? Im trying to find information on the 100 ish to 400 ish lens that is on the road map but it doesnt even say what it will be released.

Thanks in advance

The roadmap is just meant to give users a general idea of what's coming. The lenses may or may not come out and may or may not be changed based on the market, sales, customer feedback, etc.

There's a lot of us waiting for that one.

+1 I am debating between DA*300 and the 120-400 or whatever. Would like closer to 400 so I'm still waiting but DA*300 is still tempting.

Ricoh does seem to be completing things on the road map, maybe not as fast as we want but they are ticking off their to do list.

Got tired of waiting for the 16-85 DA* or whatever the numbers were going to end up being and picked up a cheap 28-75 tamron.

I wish more of these things were weather sealed. A huge part of the reason I decided to switch to Pentax was the weather sealing.

The new HD limited lenses, they could have at least sealed the rear element and mount to ensure the body is sealed even if the rest of the lens isn't.
