Updated Pentax K-mount lens roadmaps

Ricoh published two updated Pentax K-mount lens roadmaps – click for larger view (645 and Q roadmaps were not updated yet).

There is a new lens on the roadmap: the HD Pentax-D FA 70-200mm f/4. Here is the launch order:

1. HD Pentax-D FA★ 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW: Spring 2018
2. HD Pentax-DA★ 11-18mm f/2.8ED DC AW: Summer 2018
3. HD Pentax-D FA 70-200mm f/4: Spring 2019
4. HD Pentax-D FA★ 85mm f/1.4: 2019

then, in no particular order (with a “2019 or Later” tentative release date):

  • Large Aperture Wide-Angle Single Focus Lens
  • Ultra Wide-Angle Single Focus Lens
  • Fish-Eye Zoom Lens
  • Telephoto Zoom Lens

The new HD Pentax-D FA 70-200mm f/4 lens will probably be based on the current Tokina AT-X 70-200mm f/4 PRO FX VCM-S.

Here is the full frame Pentax K-mount lens roadmap:
