Which ones have you used? Which ones have you owned?
What is your reason for asking such questions?

Yes, this is generally why people ask questions. I was more after your motive for the curiosity. What do you expect to gain from it?

No. That is the look of frustration and exasperation.

Pentax is the brand of mirrors and prisms. Ricoh is the brand of technology. Building on Theta (inside which is a standard Ricoh camera battery and a standard microSD card for memory) - the first Pentax non-K-mount APSc or FF sensor MILC will be a Ricoh.
The first Ricoh branded APS-C non-K-mount MILC was released already in 2011 (GXR M mount). However, I think it was few months before they actually bought Pentax -so maybe it does not count as "the first Pentax non-K...."

I think Ricoh will continue to release apsc DSLR (both low and high end) as it's core lens line up is still highly devoted to APSC. But I am afraid that future lenses, specially that wide aperture wide angle WR lens because it will be chiefly made for FF. Bulky, Fast and expensive.

Why don't Ricoh make their FA 35/2 or 35/2.8 Macro WR? It sounds nice to have a fast WR prime lens that is wider than the DA*55. (The lens is already there and looks pretty cool when paired with WR bodies as Ricoh-Pentax keeps bragging)

The DA limited zoom is a good start but reviews are mixed I am afraid.

If you mean the DA 35mm f/2.8 macro, I certainly wouldn't say that reviews are mixed. Reviews that don't state that it's fantastic are very few and far between. It is a superb lens, but it's not a 35/1.4 PLM.

Ooops. What I meant was the limited zoom (20-40). And yep, the 35/2.8 is superb but does not have fast aperture.
