Dual (and triple) focal lenses are typical of Leica M.
They did this a number of times back then.

Well, it's a modern high end 50mm prime.
No way it will look like an FA.
And still, as.the very little we could get as a a glimpse it looks like it provides gentle rendering and not agressive one (Sigma Art in my mind here) and yet, sharpnas required at f/2.

Fine by me. And more.

It was licensed to Tokina.
Patents are clear enough I believe.
sTill, without the TOkina collaboration this lens might not have been developed, that's the real meaning of this sentence IMO.

Yep. All licensed from Pentax to Tokina except the 12-24 which was licensed from Tokina to Pentax. I'm talking about blueprints and nothing else of course.

You really don't want to know the percentage of the product price big brands put to marketing.
And you don't wanna know either about margins.

I heavily suspect this is very different for Ricoh-Pentax. But if RIcoh-Pentax stays what it is, that's partly why too.

It only tends toward tracking being a lens problem most of the time more than a camera problem.
Very interesting.

Would you like to have an updated Pentax or Ricoh GXR?

It only has a use if you change mount.

If K-mount is abandoned, as was a-mount, it would be needed.

Otherwise I really don't see it.

Well for those who remember, the K10 firmware v1.3 (I think) was supposedly not downgradable.
A simple mod allowed it. So hacking version number at least was done a decade ago.

some kind of SHOW or attractive EVENTS at this years RICOH booth at PHOTOKINA ?

Sure, sure. But remember what you're asking for is exactly what costs money
Basically, that's marketing.

Sure Ricoh could be a lot better in that area but the money need to comes from somewhere. Either they need to charge more are they have less money for R&D/manufacturing.

I agree this is frustrating though ;)

When (IF) a theory is contradicted (effectively) by so many exceptions it looks like a joke.... the theory really is just, a theory. That's fine, we can all write one. But useful? Not sure.

The hype is in fact extremely easy to get: if they, distantly, plan for TCs, it means there will be lenses to use them with.

Simple isn't it ? ;)
