A Canon L red ring make over on older lenses

But ouch check out the price increases!

The new WR flashes looked ok, until I saw the prices

Looks like Ricoh are pricing Pentax out of the market, very sad to see as the company did have a lot of potential, but have failed so far to find a parent company that knows how to push the brand properly.

Maybe the street prices will be better, but they suffer from having slow speeds on the limited range. Are people going to pay nearly £600 for a 21mm F3.2 AL Limited? I've used a few of the limited's they're pretty good some of them nice build. But they're slow aka 40mm f2.8, unless you need to compact size I think most users are better off with a 17-50mm f2.8

Ricoh really have been drinking something, a 20-40mm f2.8-f4
Nice build, WR but £849?
