Maybe Pentax is going to license it (like they did the 18-250) and put in their new DC motor.

The 18-250 has been discontinued for a while now, with nothing really replacing it, and there's definitely demand for super-zooms.

Who knows... I'd rather consider their 60mm f2.0 macro. But I imagine this lens would have a tough time to compete against Pentax primes.
Maybe that's why they do not sell that much lenses in Pentax mount, Pentaxuans are loyal to their own smc lenses?

I think... in terms of broader consumer interest (beyond long-term, hard-core Pentaxians), both a Pentax version of this new Tamron 18-270mm and a 135-400mm WR lens to go with the new 18-135mm WR would be wise additions to Pentax's lens lineup.

I would have been very interested in the 60mm macro. Not so in the super-zoom . . .

I sent an email to Tamron regarding their 18-270 PZD and 70-300 USD lenses, and the reply I received was,

"Unfortunately I have not heard of any intentions to release either of those lenses with Pentax mounts. No announcement of intentions for future Pentax lenses have been made at this time."
