Hoping for a 24-70 F/2, but that's not going to happen. Need to see what the speed of the DA* LTD zoom is going to be.

Mine is either the 50mm 1.8 or the 40mm XS... for use as a street lenses (my 16-50 is attracting too much attention), waiting on reviews to find out which one I will buy

Nothing on the lens road map interests me, so put me down for a "none" too. FA & FA* lenses look a lot more interesting .... I guess I'm stuck in the past

I think even 2.8-4 is optimistic for this zoom. I wish it were 24-70, but 16-85 is more likely to ve variable aperture and top out at f/4.5+.

The long tele, the 560mm has my interest. I'm waiting to see the real thing, not a mock up and of course, much will depend on the price.

Agreed, a new 85mm f/1.4 and a 135mm f/1.8 would be nice!

The 16-85~ if it is weather sealed and is fast. I've been waiting for a WR fast standard zoom lens. The 16-50 and the 18-135 didn't quite cut it for various reasons.

The 100-400 if it is weather sealed, otherwise I'll get the 55-300.

the wide angle zoom as well. Before I buy any of theses lenses I'll have to see the reviews though.

One would suggest, when look to discuss the roadmap, perhaps to provide it in the OP

Me, I'm going to be interested in that superzoom if it's anything like the 18-250.. but only if it's WR. Then the 560mm of course.

If any of the other zooms, especially that wide zoom, are in WR, then I'll be interested.

I'll get the 40mm pancake with the K-01. I am already overweight with lenses I love between 10mm and 500mm so I am not tempted.
