Well updated lenses would also be nice. New SDM-II engine in the current lenses of the DA* range. SDM should be faster and no worry's about dying

Cheap DA-L 20-100mm/f3,5-f4,5 lens would be a nice travel lens.

New DA*85mm/f1.4.
New DA*80-200mm/f2.8
New DA*180mm/f2.0 or DA*135mm/f2.0 or in between.
New DA*28mm/f1.4
New DA*200mm/f4 macro with diafragmaring
New DA*300mm/f2.8
New DA*400mm/f4
New DA400mm/f5.6WR cheap lens
New DA*500mm/f4.5
New DA*600mm/f5.6
New macro rings with contacts so lenses act as A-lens.
New Teleconverters, supporting SDM, 1.4x 1.7x 2x

That is enough for now. I'm not so into wideangle myself.

While you can still order a FA*600 from Pentax Japan, a current 600 or longer would help.....
While in every thread where people want some long Pentax glass, someone repeats the "special order" for the 600mm. I really doubt it, and even if you did get one you would not be able to get it serviced.

I think having a port of the Canon 200mm/1.8 lens would really be something.

The Nikkor 50mm/0.95 would be interesting. I'd also love to see something really outrageous, like a f0.75 lens.

If it's just Pentax lens updates: DA* 135/1.8, DA* 85/1.8, DA* 50/1.2, DA* 200/4 macro, DA* 400/2.8, and an affordable DA* 250-600/5.6

Haha, guess it's impossible to start a thread like this without people fantasizing over possible Pentax remakes/updates.

You mean affordable with DA* 250 , 600 and f5.6 in one single lens?
None of these characteristics come ever close to "affordable", well ok if affordable means 4000 a piece.(i even expect more ^^ )

A series of shift lenses of the APSC and 645d line UPS.
Along the lines of 35mm field of views, 24, 35, 85. And if they're feeling great, something below 20 mm.

Imagine how many landscape and architectural photographers would gravitate to the 645 system.....

They could design both line ups in parallel.

Easy:
A 10-1000mm f/1 [IF] HSM Macro with internal zoom, MFT of 20cm at 10mm and offering 2:1 magnifaction from 50mm all way up to 1000mm.
20 rounded aperture blades, tilt and shift capabilities included with the Size and weight of the DA* 55. Water proof. Heat resistant up to 5000 Kelvin. Indestructible.
Also it should be able to fire LASER beams! And it should be capable of producing enough thrust to move an aircraft.

All for the price of 19,99$.
Yup, that's pretty much about it.

Realistically I just want Pentax to be Sigma (with better QC).
Out of 6 lenses I have, 1 is a Pentax. I know they don't care but they should think about it.
If there was a sealed normal zoom from Sigma, I'm sure I'd own this one instead.
If Sigma adds sealing to their lenses, Pentax' lenses have lost me.

Not a lens but I really think Pentax needs a new TC or two (1.7x or 1.4x + 2.0x) in the lineup.

That would pretty much do it but I would add a DA 20.2.8
