DA High Magnification Zoom Lens from The Lens road map?

Are there any new rumors about what the DA High Magnification Zoom Lens from the Pentax Lens Road map could be?

I wish for a 18-200 WR SDM! Please make it happen, yesterday.

but the 17-70mm is kinda like a 16-85mm... i don't really want a copy of the canon's 15-85mm f3.5-5.6 either...

i guess 24-70mm f2.8 would be suffice. =]

or a 16-50mm f2.8 version II

yes.. except not as wide not as long and certainly not a constant f4.
Think in terms of the nikon 16-85 which is a stunning lens i might add
Then cross it with cannons 24-105 f4 and build quality !
End result would be yummy indeed lol
actualy... soon as i read that back to myself.... actualy it certainly is a constant f4 lol lol lol
shush... its late... im tired lol
