Ricoh has announced that it is launching a new Pentax 645D model this spring. The new 645D will feature a medium format CMOS sensor, which seems to be a new trend. Additionally, the camera is said to “high-speed response” and feature a tilt-type LCD. [click to continue…]
Pentax posted a new K-mount lens line up that shows a roadmap for upcoming lenses with a spot for a new 70-200mm zoom lens. Presumably, this would be a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, which is currently not covered in Pentax’s digital lens lineup. Of course, the DA 50-135mm f/2.8 ED lens covers this gap because all of Pentax’s DSLRs are APS-C camera.
Stretching the logic a bit further forces us to wonder whether or not a 70-200mm lens in the roadmap means that a Pentax full frame camera might finally make its way to market.
