    I knew that the 28-105 was sharper than the 24-70! That’s one helluva kit lens there! Going forward, I think Ricoh will be better off making their very own lenses instead of re-bading Tamrons’. Also, that 70-200 is not that expensive, it retails for what gray marketeers ask for CaNikon’s when they are on sale, at least in the US!

      They will push forward with more original designs. The tamron the rebadges were to just get the k-1 on the market. The 15-30 is awesome regardless so that was a good move.

    PenRon 24-70 is heavy? Lol. Too much mouse pushing I guess.
