New 400mm Lens?

Have any of you heard about the new 400mm lens Pentax is supposed to be coming out with?

Re: New 400mm Lens?

Hi,
there is rumor of a 400mm lens but we don't know if it's an f/4 or f/5.6 lens?
I hope for an f/4 and with a TC 1.4X with SDM !!!

Will see.

In the current issue of Outdoor Photographer, they referenced the lens being in the offing but they gave no details.

This is all interesting, since a Pentax employee announced a few months ago that the DA lens line-up was complete. We'll see.

Re: New 400mm Lens?

maybe tokina 80-400 conversion in DA* package

I'd rather see FA*250-600 on the market again, even if expensive and limited, it may drag some people to use Pentax. These exotics should never been stopped or Hoya should offer at least custom orders on these FA* lenses

Re: New 400mm Lens?

A DA*400/f4.0 would be nice along with a 1.4xTC. Then again a DA*135-400/f4.0 would be really nice. I keep finding the DA*300 a little short for wildlife photography. Something in the 400 to 500 range will really help.

I keep hearing that the "super telephoto" will be out by the end of the year.

If they could make a DA*400f4 with same image quality as their DA*300 and ring SDM... I know it will costs a lot but what a dream lens !
