Re: Lack of 3rd party love for Pentax

I think there is something in Pentax' release of "their" new 18-270. From what I have seen, this more than likely, is a re-badged Tamron 18-270. This is not currently available in the 'K' mount from Tamron. If any assumptions can be made from this, one might suspect that Pentax Ricoh may be attempting to repair any previous rifts between Pentax and the third party manufacturers. This is only conjecture and in no way represents any first hand information. I think we are still in a wait and see proposition with the Ricoh direction for Pentax.
