Ricoh files a patent for a Pentax 35-80mm f/4 full frame lens

The FA 28-70 f4 is very decent indeed on aps-c (lens separation issue aside) and 28 is a much better fit than 35 for aps-c.
FA 24-90 f3.5-4.5 was a decent lens too. Why not re-issue (and refresh) one of those?

Anyone else miss the K200D?

I own a k100d and I think it's the best camera ergonomically I would ever use. And yes, I have tried the k-7/5 body. Image quality of the k-200 at lower isos is top notch. If AF is as good as in the k100d then I can see why some would prefer it to a new (old style SLR like), Disneyland colour response CMOS body.

What, "throw everything away and make me a cheaper and better Canon/Nikon" is that better? That's exactly what Sony tried with the A900/A850, btw. On the other hand, there's still just one mirrorless FF system on the market right now, and Pentax could be the second (They could have been there even before Sony if they wanted, if even just to stick their pole and make a bold statement).

By the time they (Pentax) have finished making all the lenses and stuff, mirrorless could be eating the whole ground. Don't forget Sony had tried that route before with the A900 (or somesuch, not a bad model for that time by any means).

Assuming you're right it's good enough reason not to go ahead with the whole FF thing. Why would any FF fans care? Most of them could have by now migrated or bought a used FF body. Expensive, mechanical DSLRs dinosaurs are not that hot any more, although they could have their niche, like vinyl records do.

Or what's wrong with yellow, anyway?
Happen to be looking (right now) at the current cover photo of this site, why do all recent Pentax photos have that sickly-bluish cold tone?

What Should Pentax Do?

This is what the k-50/500 replacements should look like IMO. Mirrorless, K-mount, k-x / k100d size, integrated EVF, flipping LCD, continuous AF in video, great peaking, DOF priority view mode. It may not be the ultimate small mirrorless Pentax line (which could be GR based?), but it will sell those DA lenses until Pentax has decided what to do next.

First and foremost for me, photos should speak. No smearing. No magenta skins (or violet whites), no bluish casts or dull unconvincing colours. Good texture rendering. Good high iso performance.

Most importantly, colour rendering wise, after all those horrible Hoya years, seems to be back in the ballpark!

A is surely for Asahi :)
A bit confusing as there's already A series lenses and an A mount (for Sony)

Wow, Thanks a lot Adam. I've had it for so long and wasn't aware of that. Saw the green macro range mark but it felt like the zoom ring could not reach it. I'll try this when I'm home.

Couldn't agree more.



I think a K-0X line could have been a perfectly legitimate interim EVIL line if done properly (integrated EVF + tilting LCD + ergonomics + on sensor PDAF + no AA filter).

Yea, you may be right. I think only the 17-70mm and DA*55 use exclusively SDM (?)

What if this K-01 replaces SDM support (via powerzoom contacts) with a new interface? Dual-drive lenses would still AF using the screw drive motor..

Not for video. For me it sort of transformed shooting in low light.
Best invention since the wheel :) (at least on the k100ds)

I would also add:

- Better colour rendition (gamut): Weaker blues (and magentas), more cyan skys..
- Better texture rendition, weaker AA, weaker NR at low iso.
