It looks like Pentax will soon announce those mysterious telephoto zoom lenses that we saw on display at CES 2015. The new lenses will be the HD Pentax-D FA 70-200mm f/2.8 and HD Pentax-D FA 150-450mm f/4.5-5.6 models. [Read more…]
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.

Alongside the new 12-28mm wide-angle zoom lens for APS-C cameras, Tokina has announced a new telephoto zoom – the AT-X 70-200mm f/4 PRO FX VCM-S.
Notably, the new AT-X 70-200mm f/4 PRO FX VCM-S lens is designed to work on both full frame and APS-C crop sensor DSLRs. The new 70-200mm f/4 lens features built-in image stabilization and 19 elements in 14 groups. The lens has a 67mm filter size and offers a minimum focusing distance of 1 meter.
