Top 26 Best Pentax Lenses 2017 (Selected by ePHOTOzine)

https://www.ephotozine.com/article/top-26-best-pentax-lenses-2017--25685

Over years, I have bought 13 of those, all brand new. However, I haven't bought the recent and newer "Pentax" lenses for quite a while. It is because they are not attractive enough and are not value for money in my eyes or being too bulky and heavy. Is it only me?

Who Will Buy This?
