At a recent Pentax Clubhouse event in Yotsuya, Tokyo, the company’s representative hinted at the release of a new version of the Pentax 100mm f/2.8 D-FA WR Macro lens. Just a day later a new lens roadmap was released confirming one new macro lens, one telephoto lens and one wide-angle, large aperture, single focus lens. 

It was hinted that the updated Pentax 100m f2.8 D-FA WR Macro lens would feature a new optical design made using top-quality glass and a CT coating to further improve optical its characteristics. It will deliver less purple fringing than the current lens and yet with all the improvements remain a similar size and weight.
