Seeing Pentax policy or replacing traditional focal lenghts with new one reduced by the crop factor, I don't believe well'see a new 600. But a black DA*400/4, priced around 3500euros, with a couple of multiplier would be enough for most Pentax shooters.

A good 1,4x I think is long overdue, much more than lenses above 400mm.

I would like to see a dedicated bellows macro lens , it can be anywhere from 10mm to 20mm . Not a wide angle lens ! but a macro lens , similar to zeiss luminar and leitz photar .

Optimized for 15x magnification

This might be the understatement of the day!

A 1.4x with SDM support is in order as soon as the 300f4 hits the market IMO...
