After updating the roadmaps for all Pentax-branded lens mounts at CP+ 2015, Ricoh has patented a new lens, which could describe one of the models found in one of the roadmaps. The Pentax 18mm f/2.8 Macro lens has been patented and it describes an optic made for Q-mount mirrorless cameras with 1/1.7-inch-type sensors.
The CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015 is underway in Yokohama, Japan and Ricoh has joined the event in order to make a few announcements. The company has released an updated Pentax lens 2015 roadmap, which reveals the new lenses that will become available soon for K-mount, 645-mount, and Q-mount cameras.
Ricoh is preparing for the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015 with another record-breaking product. After announcing the world’s smallest weathersealed DSLR, the Pentax K-S2, the company has introduced the HD Pentax DA 18-50mm f/4-5.6 DC WR RE lens, which is the world’s shortest standard zoom lens.
Ricoh returns with another event full of Pentax-branded product announcements. The new Pentax K-S2 has just become the world’s smallest weathersealed DSLR camera. The K-S2 is based on the original K-S1, but the new model comes without its predecessor’s uncanny LED illumination system and with a traditional design.
Ricoh has confirmed that it is developing a Pentax-branded DSLR camera with a full frame image sensor that will be on-display at CP+ 2015. However, the company has not revealed any technical details of the shooter. Thankfully, the rumor mill has just leaked the first Pentax full frame DSLR specs list, which includes a 36MP sensor.
Ricoh’s final announcement of the day consists of the second telephoto zoom lens designed for Pentax K-mount DSLR cameras with full frame image sensors. The Pentax D FA 150-450mm f/4.5-5.6ED DC AW lens has become official bearing no more, no less than four autofocus buttons on its barrel and will be released next month.
As the rumor mill has predicted, Ricoh has introduced a new lens to prepare itself for the upcoming Pentax K-mount full frame DSLR camera. The HD Pentax D FA 70-200mm f/2.8ED DC AW lens has become official, promising to deliver a high image quality and high-performance for portrait, action, and sports photographers.
After years of constant praying, the dreams of Pentax photographers will become a reality by the end of 2015. Pentax has officially confirmed that a Pentax full frame DSLR camera is in development. Moreover, a prototype of the device will be displayed at CP+ 2015, while its release date is set to take place sometime this year.
At Photokina 2014, Ricoh said that it was planning to release a Pentax-branded full frame camera sometime in 2015. Although the company’s CES 2015 event has been focused on APS-C products, it appears that the HD Pentax-D FA 70-200mm f/2.8 lens will be announced soon for DSLRs with full frame image sensors.
After previewing this product at the Photokina 2014 event, Ricoh has finally announced it. The Pentax 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 weathersealed lens will be released for K-mount DSLR cameras by the end of November 2014. The optic will provide high image quality, which will be appreciated by landscape as well as portrait photographers.
Ricoh is expected to officially introduce the HD Pentax DA 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR lens on October 30. The company previewed the product at the Photokina 2014 event and the rumor mill is claiming that the K-mount lens is bound to become official soon. The claims are backed-up by a specs list and a press photo of the lens.
The prayers of a multitude of Pentax fans will be answered in 2015. Ricoh has confirmed that the company is currently working on a Pentax full frame DSLR. Furthermore, it appears that the camera will be released sometime in 2015. On the other hand, three new K-mount optics were on-display at Photokina 2014.
With Photokina 2014 being just a few weeks away, official announcements have started to pour it. After Sony, Fujifilm, and Olympus, it is Ricoh’s turn to introduce a new product. The Pentax K-S1 DSLR camera is official and it is packing an LED illumination system that will indicate the device’s state among other details.
Ricoh has allegedly scheduled the Pentax K-S1 announcement date for August 28. The new K-mount DSLR camera has had more of its specs leaked on the web ahead of this date. An interesting information consists of the purpose of the LEDs built into the grip, which are said to display the state of the K-S1.
After having some of its photos leaked, an insider has leaked the Pentax K-S1 specs list. Additionally, two more photos of the upcoming DSLR have been revealed, confirming that the camera will be released in multiple color choices. The K-S1 is expected to be announced by Ricoh sometime prior to the start of the Photokina 2014 event.
