Ricoh has unveiled updated versions of its Pentax K-mount lens roadmap for June 2016 or later.
The company is working hard for new cameras and lenses. They recently launched the Pentax K-70 digital SLR camera and compact, lightweight and weather-resistant HD PENTAX-DA 55-300mm F4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE lens.
The only difference looks like the addition of a 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 zoom lens.
