Re: 17-70 still listed

Will be interesting to see if Pentax used their own lens configuration, or they've used the Sigma 17-70 and renamed it

Ricoh still lists the 17-70. On whose authority are you claiming it's not in production?

They could be old stock Ricoh hasn't been able to sell off as yet. The 17-70 is, optically, a very good lens, but it's been plagued with issues relating to AF/SDM and lacks WR. The new mid-level/prosumer type of lens adumbrated on the road map (and rumored to be an 18-70 f2.8-4) is almost certainly a replacement for the DA 17-70. In any case, it's difficult to understand why Ricoh/Pentax would wish to keep both lenses in production.
