Instead of mucking around in endless circles with variations on the same theme when it comes to kit lenses, I would rather suggest Pentax turns a new chapter and makes:

  • all “normal” lenses a constant f4 aperture, nice quality glass, and
  • higher-end lenses at f2.8 or f2 (where applicable) for those who need more.

So instead of endless 18-55/3.5-5.6 iterations, make just ONE: say, 17-50/f4, with better glass. The quantity of sales will justify the investment. And then seal the deal.

Basically, the ideea would be to promote the 17-70/4 as "semipro" kit (or whatever Ricoh marketing find right) also with WR and at a more reasonable price - lets say 300 instead of 500 Euro at present.

Yes, that would be great!
