Ricoh Announces 24-70mm f/2.8 ED SDM WR Lens for Upcoming Pentax Full Frame DSLR

Ricoh announced a new full frame zoom lens – Pentax HD Pentax-D FA 24-70mm f/2.8ED SDM WR Lens for the upcoming Pentax full frame DSLR camera. The US price of the lens is $1,299.95 (available for pre-order at B&H and Adorama). And this new Pentax lens will be released on October 20th, 2015.
