I agree, there never really was any budget 85/135mm or budget 24-28mm AF lenses.

Back then there were f/3.5 and f/2.8 but this is of course a long time ago.

This exactly the kind of release which would NEVER appear on a roadmap. The HD FA35 didn't either.

Even better, optically, it is a real gem.
A slow AF gem, but a gem.

If your AF points are bouncing everywhere, how can you expect AF to work reliably ?

As a limited lens, the rendering will probably be quite different than the 15-30.

Even from a landscape POV, this is quite premature thinking IMO.

What are you talking about ?
This is a Limited not a * lens.

It isn't only compactness.
The GR is a heck of a photographer tool.
One needs to use it and dive into the menus to get it.

Completely agree.
Ricoh showed they could handle that properly.

Because it the past Pentax AF reacted badly to converters.
Of course now that they do offer one (although only APS), they mostly fixed the issue. At least with their own converter.

1/ Yes and no, they all do.
2/ Even then, if your supplier suddenly says there's none. What can you do ?

Agreed. A 300/2.8 with converters would morph into a 450/4 and 600/5.6.

True but if the designed is made with a MILC register distance in mind from the start... :confused:
The opposite isn't a problem, indeed.

If they can't afford any Big Tele R&D themselves then they'll have to do so but they might want to hurry up, there isn't a lot of guys doing modern R&D for SLR lenses anymore.

Or they might license Nikon/Canon designs but somehow I'd be 'a little bit' surprised :lol:

Indeed.
Not though that most of the time e.g. CPUs are produced in such a way. Features disabled with a little laser pass here or there.

Yeah, a good thing that most shutters have been vertically implemented for decades since that era.

Still fun to see although rolling shutter from current phones are way funnier IMO.

No, but the Oly patent may just be it.
