Question about Lenses for Film & Digital
Jun 4, 2008

All the recent Pentax lenses from the past few years have been for digital SLRs only. That's in stark contrast to Nikon & Sony, two companies that kept producing 35mm full frame lenses for many years, even when they didn't have a full frame digital SLR in the market yet.

When was the last time Pentax designed a new lens for the 35mm full frame format? When was the last time Pentax designed a new 35mm film SLRs? Are Pentax film SLRs still being manufactured at all?

Sorry for such newbie-ish questions. I'm strictly a Canon shooter, but Pentax has always intrigued me.
