So does this confirm that Pentax is sticking with the current SDM then and not updating it?

How long have these lenses been known of? I read the forums a lot, even posting recently about my hope for a DA* UWA, and heard nothing of this....will there be an official announcement?

I just researched this and apparently this image was just a prediction from a japanese photo mag.... was there something I missed in these lenses becoming reality at some point?

This is old and has been debunked as a baseless rumor. Move along.

LAME! Would love a 10-16 (though probably would have been a blessing and a curse seeing as its SDM)

Hardly...
As much as I think 20/2 and 28/2 would be nice, that picture was indeed from japanese camera mag trying to make prediction of what's coming.
For those who still believe it's true. It wasn't exactly hard to predict 645D. That thing had been publicly in making for few years and come on, K-5 was easy predict, K-7 body with new guts... Does it sound familiar? K10-20?!?.
I wish they made some new lenses like this, something woth talking about, unlike DA18-135 and DA35AL...

This came up a year ago and was debunked by someone who could read the Japanese. These are "Dream" Lenses that the magazine would like to see.
