Re: On the Ltd zoom and the long zoom....

Hi Barry,

Thanks.  You're dead right - don't know how I missed that.  That having been said, I still can't see why they'd produce another 18-35-ish zoom lens and compete with the Sigma Art 18-35/1.8.  The Limiteds have all been primes so far, and small and high grade is the general sense in which they're seen by Pentax owners.  I'm not sure that a Limited zoom makes a lot of sense.  And would it be APSC or FF when they're considering the development of an FF camera?

It would seem better to me (a mere enthusiast not running a camera manufacturing company) that it would be better to turn priorities toward lenses we really need :  the TC, the WA zoom, a good DA* (not DA) zoom out to 400mm, and a suite of FF lenses if they are indeed heading in that direction.

Cheers, Rod
