Pentax K shooters will soon have entry to brighter highend primes Digital Trends

“Why it matters to you Ricoh launched its first full-frame Pentax K-1 last year but the lens choices only included eight options with f/2.8 apertures — that is about to change with two new f/1.4 primes.
Pentax full-frame shooters will soon have more lens options to choose from. During the CP+ show in Tokyo this week, Ricoh displayed a prototype of a new 50mm lens, tentatively named the D FA50mm F1.4. The company is also currently developing an 85mm prime with the same bright f/1.4 aperture and a telephoto zoom.
The lens has a star designation, which Ricoh says is a high-performance star that will be reserved for their high-resolution, high-contrast lenses. The company also says the lens will have a u201cbeautiful bokeh (defocus) effect,u201d though itu2019s unclear if that bokeh is simply from the wide aperture or from something else, like Sonyu2019s new Smooth Trans Focus designed to give bokeh smoother edges.
