The most glaring omission from the Pentax lens range is the ubiquitous 24-70 f2.8. I know that lens is usually coupled with FF cameras but it is still very useful with cropped sensors, particularly if teamed with the 12-24 (which Pentax does offer as a DA lens).
By the way, I have been told by Park Cameras that the D-BG4 grip for the K7 and K5 has been discontinued by Pentax
. If that is true I wonder what the reason could be, particularly as both cameras continue to sell well. Perhaps everyone has been buying cheaper compatibles like HinFrance did?
