That would be fantastic. I’m hoping that Pentax release a PLM version of a normal focal length lens…like the Sony 16-50 f/2.8 SSM. That’s what I need the most. A faster and quieter AF for everyday use.

Or an update to the venerable 18-135mm

Yes, I would certainly buy a sharper PLM version of 18-135mm. If they come up with a constant f/4 version then I'm willing to pay a premium for that 😊

still my default walk-around. If they packed an updated HD KAF4 18-135mm as a kit with the new APS-C body, I'd certainly go for it.

For a faster/quieter f/2.8, there's the Sigma 17-50mm.

Hmmm, thanks.. does the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 focuses faster than Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8? It would if Sigma is without screw-driven AF, is it?
