Ricoh Updates Pentax K-mount Lens Roadmap for June 2016

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.

Ricoh published an updated Pentax K-mount lens roadmap as of June 2016

For Pentax K-mount cameras, the company is planning to release four new K-Mount D FA lenses in 2016 and four more lenses such as a large aperture standard single-focus, medium telephoto prime, ultra-wide-angle prime and a fish-eye zoom model for the year 2017. See the pdf here.
